The MET Orchestra

Friday, June 14, 2019 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
URL Copied
Yannick Nézet-Séguin by Rose Callahan, Elīna Garanča by Holger Hage / DG
Mahler's and Bruckner’s deep personal emotions are masterfully expressed with gestures both large and small. Mahler’s Rückert Lieder contemplate love, life, and death with delicate scoring—solo instruments are used sparingly for effect—and subtle vocal writing. Bruckner emotes on a larger scale in a superbly crafted symphony that awes with its sweeping breadth, drama, and soaring lyricism. The work energizes with its robust Scherzo and jubilant finale, but its emotional core is the second-movement Adagio, a breathtaking memorial to his idol, Wagner.

Bruckner’s Symphony No. 7

In a career filled with critical disappointments, Bruckner finally achieved acclaim with his Symphony No. 7. It’s a superbly crafted masterpiece where drama and soaring lyricism are combined. It opens mysteriously, has flashes of rustic humor in its Scherzo—including an imitation of a rooster’s crow—and culminates in a jubilant finale. Its soul is the second-movement Adagio, a breathtaking tribute inspired by thoughts of the death of his idol, Wagner.
