Naples Philharmonic Special Performance
Andrey Boreyko, conductor
Martucci — Nocturne
Mahler — Das Lied von der Erde
The Naples Philharmonic celebrates Andrey Boreyko’s eight seasons as music director with a performance of Mahler’s powerful Das Lied von der Erde. Using text from Hans Bethge’s The Chinese Flute, a rewriting of classical Chinese poetry, and utilizing a large orchestra and vocal soloists, Das Lied von der Erde was considered by Leonard Bernstein to be Mahler’s greatest “symphony.”
Please note that there will not be a pre-concert Prelude prior to the performance.
