Two monumental Viennese composers, separated by a century

This Masterworks program features two monumental Viennese composers, separated by a century: Mozart and Mahler. Mahler said, “a symphony must be like the entire world. It must contain everything.” Mahler’s First Symphony, nicknamed “Titan” is a musical and spiritual journey featuring musical depictions of the universe, springtime, a funeral procession of animals, a klezmer band and one of the most dramatic finales in all of music. Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 will be performed by prize-winning guest artist Aristo Sham. He has been featured in the Channel 4 programme, The World’s Greatest Musical Prodigies.
