Håkan Hardenberger is called on to play trumpet, piccolo trumpet, and cow horn-as well as sing and play simultaneously-in HK Gruber's marvelously eclectic showpiece that opens the program. Mahler's Fifth Symphony, a magnificent five-movement journey from despair to joy, is one of his most popular works. He believed that a symphony should embrace the world, and it's all here: an opening funeral march, folk-inspired dances, a waltz, and exuberantly high spirits in the finale. The unforgettable and unsurpassable heart of the work is the Adagietto, a sublime love letter for strings and harp Mahler wrote for his wife, Alma.
