Slobodeniouk Conducts Brahms

Fri Nov 12 - Sat Nov 13, 2021

Orchestra Hall

~1.5 hrs including a 20 min intermission

If you have followed the Minnesota Orchestra recently, you are sure to have heard a few symphonies by Gustav Mahler. What came before Mahler penned his Titan Symphony? Sung in these concerts by mezzo Sasha Cooke, Songs of a Wayfarer is filled with grief and heartache and packed with ideas that found their way into many of Mahler’s other major works. Dima Slobodeniouk returns to Orchestra Hall to conduct these songs, plus Ulysses Kay’s Suite from The Quiet One and Johannes Brahms’ passionate and tragic Symphony No. 4.

A Few Things to Know

  • The Quiet One was nominated for an Academy Award for best documentary feature in 1948 and best original screenplay in 1949; American composer Ulysses Kay composed his orchestral suite at the same time as the original score.
  • Mezzo Sasha Cooke can be heard as a featured artist on the Minnesota Orchestra’s recording of Mahler’s Second Symphony, recorded in June 2017.
