Michael Tilson Thomas, conductor


BUY TICKETS







2019 Kennedy Center Honoree Michael Tilson Thomas conducts Mahler’s rousing, five-movement “Resurrection” Symphony. A champion interpreter of Mahler’s work, MTT has recorded all nine of the composer’s symphonies and major orchestral works—a feat earning him seven (of his 12) Grammy Awards.

Since MTT’s close friend Leonard Bernstein famously conducted the symphony at Madison Square Garden’s “Night of Stars” memorial to President Kennedy, Mahler’s “Resurrection” has remained a poignant message of life, rebirth, and immortal triumph for the human soul.

THE PROGRAM:

Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection”

FEATURED ARTISTS:
National Symphony Orchestra
Michael Tilson Thomas, conductor
Jacquelyn Stucker, soprano
Alice Coote, mezzo-soprano
Choral Arts Society of Washington
Scott Tucker, Artistic Director
