Robert Spano, conductor
Symphony in B minor, D. 759 'Unfinished'
Symphony No. 1 in D major 'Titan'
Gustav Mahler’s daring Symphony No. 1 is an exceptional work that effortlessly transits between tranquility to grandeur within an hour of music. Setting the scene to Titan is Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony, known as one of the greatest, and the strangest, of the genre.
"Spano has that great skill in a conductor of making every performance radiate joy" – The New York Times
