Over the last few seasons, the Mariinsky Orchestra has given Carnegie Hall audiences one-of-a-kind Mahler, dramatic Berlioz, and a memorable account of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies. On this program, the orchestra and Valery Gergiev perform Strauss’s tone poem about an artist-hero who celebrates triumphs, battles enemies, and woos a gentle lover; and Shostakovich’s Sixth Symphony, which veers from elegiacally touching to absurdly bitter.
