How do you say “I love you” if you’re Gustav Mahler? Nothing could surpass the radiant Adagietto movement, scored for strings and harp, of his Fifth Symphony, a gift for his beloved wife Alma. But there’s also raw, intense music and the manic Rondo-Finale that brings this orchestral tour de force to its climax. Love was also in the air in Mendelssohn’s First Piano Concerto, dedicated to an object of his youthful affection. Inon Barnatan (“One of the most admired pianists of his generation” ~ New York Times) is the soloist for this sometimes brilliant, sometimes gossamer, but always romantic, work. Plus, the world premiere of a much-anticipated new composition by former OPO Composer-in-Residence—Orlando’s own—Stella Sung.
