As part of the Mahler cycle presented by the OSM, Maestro Rafael Payare will conduct the Austrian composer’s monumental Symphony no. 5. Storminess, tension, and heavenly visions carry this majestic instrumental edifice from darkness into light, from the opening funeral march to the triumphant Rondo-Finale. Also on the program: pianist Yefim Bronfman is back with the OSM to perform Bartók’s masterful Concerto no. 2.
