BERNSTEIN: Serenade after Plato’s “Symposium”
MAHLER: Symphony No. 4
Our Bernstein centennial celebration continues with a curtain-raiser tribute to his friend, cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, and Bernstein’s expressive showpiece for violin and orchestra, composed in praise of love. Mahler’s most popular symphony offers a disarming directness and charm, a journey that ends in a glow of serenity and peace.
