MahlerFest Finale: Mahler’s Fifth Symphony

The Colorado MahlerFest Orchestra, with Artistic Director Kenneth Woods, returns to the Macky stage. Mahler’s fifth symphony, composed in 1901-02, is one of Mahler’s most famous and features the Adagietto movement. This famous movement, used in the film The Death in Venice, was a love letter to Alma Schindler, whom he had only recently met but would marry in 1902.

The concert will also include the world premiere of a new symphony written during the pandemic by leading British symphonist Philip Sawyers. Sawyers is the visiting composer of this year’s festival.
