CARLOS SIMON: Fate Now Conquers
BRAHMS: Violin Concerto
MAHLER: Symphony No. 5
The Omaha Symphony ends its season by welcoming two of the American classical music world’s most dynamic young artists. Atlanta-native Carlos Simon has made a name for himself in the world of composition—his music has been called “perfectly engaging and propulsive” (The Philadelphia Enquirer) and he has been commissioned by the likes of ensembles such as The New York Philharmonic, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Philadelphia Orchestra. The Omaha Symphony performs Simon for the first time, bringing his 2020 work, Fate Now Conquers, to life. Finally, the orchestra performs Mahler under the baton of Maestro Ankush Kumar Bahl for the first time—the Symphony No. 5, like his other symphonies, is a tour de force, requiring an expanded orchestra. It’s a work that broadened the tonal sensibilities of the 20th century and continues to awe audiences today.
