The Cleveland Orchestra’s music director laureate returns to lead formative works from two important and vital composers. The First Symphony, nicknamed “Titan,” is the start of Mahler’s impassioned exploration of life’s meaning, told in music of incredible vibrancy and depth. The concert begins with a set of orchestral highlights from Hans Werner Henze’s opera The Bassarids, a work for which Dohnányi led the world premiere in 1966.
