Holcomb Paradise (world premiere—Philadelphia Orchestra commission)
Mahler Symphony No. 4

“At first glance one does not even notice all that is hidden in this inconspicuous little song,” Gustav Mahler remarked to a friend. Inspired by a child’s idea of heaven, he composed “The Heavenly Life,” which later became the foundation of his Fourth Symphony.

Soprano Pretty Yende is the soloist in one of Mahler’s best-loved works. This performance also features the world premiere of Robin Holcomb’s Paradise, an experiential response to California’s deadly wildfires.
