Mahler Symphony No. 6

Thursday, March 31, 2022 at 7:30pm PT Conductor Emeritus Ludovic Morlot joins the orchestra to perform Mahler’s tragic Sixth Symphony. Driven, bitter and sweet by turns, the music is haunted by echoes of a military march stalking through the symphony. Brief moments of nostalgia suggest hope might win — but in the end, Mahler revealed, the mighty hammer-blows of fate fell the hero “like the stroke of an ax.” Program: R. STRAUSS: Burleske MAHLER: Symphony No. 6 Ludovic Morlot, conductor Francesco Piemontesi, piano Seattle Symphony 2021–2022 Masterworks Season Sponsor: Delta Air Lines Ludovic Morlot’s position is generously underwritten as the Judith Fong Conductor Emeritus.
