ORCHESTRA SEASON OPENER
Mahler’s Symphony No. 6

Yuriy Bekker, conductor
MMF Symphony Orchestra

The MMF Symphony Orchestra opens the symphonic season with Mahler’s enigmatic Symphony No. 6 in A minor.  Nicknamed the “tragische” or “tragic” symphony, Mahler’s work is described as perhaps “the first nihilist work in the history of music.” Symphony No. 6 is an exciting exploration of contrasts and emotions, a challenging undertaking for this year’s symphonic debut.
