Associate Conductor Karl Hirzer explores life’s journey with Gustav Mahler and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mahler’s sublime Rückert Songs grapple with themes of love and nature, while Mozart’s Requiem became his feverishly written final testament. The concert opens with a new work by Alberta composer Sonny-Ray Day Rider, commissioned by the Calgary Phil.
Day Rider The Blood Alchemist Wateraga: Matriakii of Magic
Mozart Requiem (completion by Robert Levin)
