Mahler Symphony No. 5


Your Colorado Symphony welcomes acclaimed conductor Asher Fisch to the podium, leading Mahler’s riveting Fifth Symphony. Known for his use of colossal orchestras, Mahler offers a musical landscape that is transfixing and varied — proceeding from tragedy to triumph over five daunting movements in a work Marin Alsop once dubbed the “orchestral equivalent of climbing Mount Everest". The first half features a pair of female composers with Joan Tower’s Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman  and Jessie Montgomery’s Piano Concerto. The fanfare is a series of five, each dedicated to noteworthy women who are “risk-takers and adventurers,” including Alsop to whom the first fanfare is dedicated and who previously recorded all five of Tower’s fanfares while with the Colorado Symphony. Awadagin Pratt will dazzle audiences on Montgomery’s Piano Concerto. A former pupil of Tower’s, Montgomery is a star on the rise, having recently been named composer in residence for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. These compositions will shine alongside one of Mahler’s most revered works.
