Mahler has been a specialty and obsession throughout Gustavo Dudamels career, and in the opening weekend of the Mahler Grooves Festival, Dudamel curates and conducts a selection of the composers music in Mahlers Journey. He opens with two excerpts from Mahlers First and Tenth symphonies that frame the composers life. Blumine was the second movement from Symphony No. 1, which was removed after a few performances but rediscovered in the 1960s and appreciated for its rapturous trumpet and melancholy oboe. The Adagio from Symphony No. 10 similarly found a new life and was published after Mahlers death. The unfinished sketches were written during personal crisis and brim with anguish and pain that is expressed through harmonic language that straddles the Romantic era and the 20th century.

Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Boys Magic Horn) is based on a collection of German poetry of the same name that was influential on Mahler and other Romantics. Two dozen of the poems are set to music with the help of mezzo-soprano [name] and baritone Simon Keenlyside that explore stories of love, loss, and the supernatural.

Concerts in the Thursday 2 subscription series are generously supported by the Otis Booth Foundation.
