CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

The Cleveland Orchestra

Friday, October 4, 2019 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
URL Copied
Franz Welser-Möst by Roger Mastroianni, Yefim Bronfman by Frank Stewart
Enjoy an opportunity to hear a unique composition performed by the artist for whom it was written. Jörg Widmann composed his Trauermarsch (Funeral March) for Yefim Bronfman, and this lushly scored concerto showcases the pianist’s remarkable skills. A funeral march opens Mahler’s symphony, but it’s only one episode in a work that pulses with life, features an exquisite musical love letter to his wife, and—as Mahler believed— embraces the world.

Part of: Orchestral Masterworks and Jörg Widmann

Franz Welser-Möst, Music Director and Conductor
