Grammy Award-winning soprano Sarah Brailey - praised for her "radiant, liquid tone" and her "limpid and spellbinding voice" - joins the DSO for Samuel Barber's poignant "Knoxville: Summer of 1915." Balancing this intimate, lyrical rhapsody is Gustav Mahler's "Symphony No. 1 in D," the first of the composer's so-called "Wunderhorn" symphonies, which incorporate material from his earlier orchestral song cycles. Refashioned as a programmatic symphony, this monumental work loosely depicts "a strong, heroic man, his life and sufferings, his battles and defeat at the hands of Fate."
