New World Symphony: Hélène Grimaud and Mahler

March 16 @ 8 p.m. | Knight Concert Hall

MOZART Overture to The Magic Flute
RAVEL Piano Concerto in G major
MAHLER Symphony No. 1

This Saturday, celebrated pianist, human rights activist, wildlife conservationist and author Hélène Grimaud makes her anticipated return to the Adrienne Arsht Center in a one-night-only performance of Maurice Ravel’s jazzy Concerto in G. Its sublime second movement in the hands of Grimaud is said to make time stand still.

Conductor Mark Wigglesworth closes the program with the New World Symphony Fellows in Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony. Mahler famously said, “to create a symphony is, for me, to create a world,” and this world is boldly emblazoned with both youthful energy and musical maturity. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s beloved Overture to The Magic Flute is a sparkling romp fueled by musical genius.  |  305.949.6722
