The Program

Under the direction of maestro Lorin Maazel, the 2013 Castleton Festival Orchestra spotlights the works of Gustav Mahler and other beloved composers. Celebrated soprano Jennifer Black lends her soaring voice to the evening's arrangements.

  • Mahler–Symphony No. 4: A reserved first movement flits between pastoral swells and playful trills before the second descends into a danse macabre, lead by an eerily-tuned solo violin representing the German personification of death. The piece concludes swiftly and lyrically as a soprano takes the role of a child describing a feast in Heaven, which oddly is not a 24-hour buffet.
  • Mendelssohn–Symphony No. 5, "The Reformation": Originally composed in celebration of the 300th anniversary of the presentation of the Augsburg Confession—a key moment in the Protestant Reformation—this symphony remains one of Mendelssohn's lesser-known works. But its sound is anything but timid: the first movement is punctuated by swelling calls from the brass section, while the luminescent fourth movement pays tribute to Martin Luther's hymn "A Might Fortress Is Our God."
