The MET Orchestra Plays Mozart and Mahler at Carnegie Hall

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall

57th Street and Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10019

Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 is an elegant work with an abundance of beautiful melodies that also shows a fascination with all things Turkish, including a section where cellos and basses slap the wooden side of their bows on the strings to create an exotic percussive sound. Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 has its own share of melodic splendor, particularly in the fourth-movement Adagietto—the gorgeous love letter he wrote to his wife, featuring strings and harp. The symphony is also dramatic with a powerful opening Funeral March and roof-raising jubilant finale. —Carnegie Hall
