UMBC Symphony Orchestra
Toshiro Mayuzumi - Pieces for Prepared Piano and Strings (1957)
Amy Beach - Romance, Op. 23 for Violin, Harp, and String Orchestra (1893) (Orchestrated by Chris A. Trotman)
Maurice Ravel - Mother Goose Suite (1908-1910)
Arturo Marquez - Danzon No. 2 (1994)
Gustav Mahler - Symphony No. 3 in D Minor - VI. Finale: Slow, Serene, Deeply Felt ("What Love Tells Me")
Featuring faculty soloists Airi Yoshioka and Kazuko Tanosaki, as well as celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of Amy Beach, this program includes music from a variety of cultures [Japan, France, Mexico, and the United States] that represents the remarkable diversity of art-music in the orchestral repertoire of the 21st century. This music from various corners of the world will be balanced with the final movement of a symphony by Gustav Mahler that he described as “embracing everything….it is what the universe tells me. This isn’t music anymore, but rather the mystical, immense sound of nature.” The title of the final movement (What Love Tells Me), Mahler points out, was a reference to spirituality on the highest level. He writes in the score: "Father, behold my wounds, do not let any creature be lost" – the first lines of text of the quoted chorale from which all of the music in this Adagio emanates.
