In a return performance with the OSM, Spanish conductor Juanjo Mena delves into the Germanic repertoire with two deep and dramatic works by Mahler and Brahms. Mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill performs the sumptuous Kindertotenlieder, Mahler’s last lieder cycle in which the orchestra conveys the tragic, keening poetry of Friedrich Rückert. Brahms’ majestic Symphony no. 3 completes this tableau combining heroism, drama, and languishing melancholy.
