Mark Gibson and the CCM Philharmonia.

Anne Arenstein and Mark Gibson discuss the Saturday, March 2 double-header of Gustav Mahler’s Third and Fourth Symphonies on Cincinnati Public Radio’s Around Cincinnati!

If you missed the broadcast, you can listen to audio of the entire interview here.

Dedicated to the memory of loyal arts patron and UC alumna Louise Dieterle Nippert (who was a soloist in Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in 1957), this unique undertaking begins on Saturday, March 2 with a 4 p.m. performance by CCM’s Concert Orchestra, featuring selections from Mahler’s Des knaben Wunderhorn (The Youth’s Magic Horn), followed by his Symphony No. 4 in G Major.

At 8 p.m. that evening, the CCM Philharmonia will then present Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 in D Minor, his longest piece and the longest symphony in the standard repertoire. Requiring immense orchestral and choral forces, Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 is only rarely performed in concert, making this double-bill presentation a truly historic feat!
