More Details:

  • Austrian composer Haydn spent most of his career far away from the posh artistic circles of Vienna, a distance which he found stoked his creativity.
  • Mahler was born and raised a Jew, though converted to Catholicism to secure a leading conducting post in anti-Semitic, turn-of-the-century Vienna.
  • The Orchestra will record Mahler’s Second this season.
  • Marc-André Hamelin’s father was a pharmacist by day, a talented amateur pianist by night.
  • Sasha Cooke started piano at four and switched to voice in college. She even did a bit of improv-comedy along the way.
