Mahler's Fourth: A Wicked New Look

April 20, 2022

Be transported to another place and time, that of turn-of-the-century Vienna. The artistic explosion of the time mixed traditional sounds with folk influences from across the Austro-Hungarian empire, and arguably gave way to the emergence of Jazz. This performance features a never-before-heard rearrangement for chamber, recast specifically for international virtuoso, David Taylor, and his bass trombone.
