MAHLER’S FIRST SYMPHONY: “TITAN”
Is it a symphony? Is it a concerto? Bernstein’s “Age of Anxiety” combines the best of both genres into a theatrical musical narrative for solo piano and orchestra. It’s enthralling listening, especially with the charismatic Kirill Gerstein at the keyboard. Scored for massive orchestra, Mahler’s First Symphony moves effortlessly between intimacy and grandeur, heralding the arrival of a symphonic master.
