Written between 1908 and 1909, Mahler’s Ninth Symphony was his last, and it is regarded as a very personal work. It has been debated whether the symphony is more emblematic of life or death, and I am very excited to hear it performed. If you want to hear this profoundly emotional work for yourself, don’t miss the Ann Arbor Symphony’s performance of it! Hope to see you there!
