Mahler’s Fifth Symphony

PUTS
Symphony No. 4: From Mission San Juan

MAHLER
Symphony No. 5

Gustav Mahler said he wanted his symphonies to encompass the entire world—and if any of his ten symphonies live up to that ambition, it’s the Fifth. The first sound you hear is a single trumpet, insistent and ominous, joined gradually by an enormous virtuosic ensemble. The heart-stopping beauty of the Adagietto movement, the thrilling, full-throated finale that affirms life itself—Mahler’s Fifth is one of the glories of the modern orchestra.

On Saturday, June 14, the Orchestra partners with The Eyeo Festival to present a multimedia experience during the concert. As Kevin Puts' Fourth Symphony is performed, sensing devices and sonic inputs gather live data that triggers visuals specific to this music—which are projected on the stage backdrop. Before and after the concert, audience members are invited to visit interactive kiosks in the auditorium, where they may play the musical instruments that generate visual effects similar to those projected live during the concert. Other interactive and collaborative art experiences are offered in the lobby following the concert. At 10pm, the Orchestra again performs the Puts work with the live visual projections—and this event is free and open to the public.

These projects are sponsored by The Eyeo Festival as part of Northern Spark—an all-night arts festival that will light up the night on June 14th, and is produced by Northern Lights.mn. For more information on Northern Spark, visit northernspark.org.
