The Sounds of Brahms & Mahler will fill the Weill Center in an unforgettable evening of classical favorites as the Sheboygan Symphony closes its 2017-2018 season with a program called “Romantic.” Two great composers, Johannes Brahms and Gustav Mahler will be featured.
Dr. Kevin R. McMahon directs the Sheboygan Symphony and Fabian Qamar prepares the Sheboygan Symphony Chorus.
McMahon stated, “The Sheboygan Symphony Chorus will join the Symphony for a presentation of two of the finest choral and orchestra works that Brahms wrote. The concert will open with Nänie (Dirge), which is a setting of Friedrich Schiller’s work of the same name; assuredly Brahms at his best and most beautiful. The choir and orchestra will continue with Brahms’ Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny). This work of hope and nostalgia, is based on the writing of Friedrich Hölderlin’s Hyperion’s Song of Destiny.”
“The second half of the program features the Symphony Orchestra in Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, known as “Titan,” continued McMahon. “This work, like the others on the program, was inspired from a novel by Jean Paul. The symphony season ends with music portraying paradise.”
Though ancillary to the concert, there will be some surprises regarding the orchestra’s upcoming 100th anniversary season as the excitement is ramping up for the Centennial Celebration next year.
