Haydn: Symphony No. 45 “Farewell”
Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde

Tito Muñoz closes his third season as Virginia G. Piper Music Director with a program of Haydn and Mahler masterworks. The program opens with Franz Joseph Haydn’s “Farewell” Symphony, offering a fitting finale to the season with its experimental forms, unexpected wit, and poignant conclusion. Gustav Mahler’s most personal and intimate work, Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth), features six songs addressing the universal themes of living, parting and salvation, as performed by vocalists Chad Shelton and Margaret Mezzacappa.
