Conductor Laureate Yaniv Segal returns to TCS for a program that captures the outer reaches of the human experience. The Prelude and Liebestod (“Love-Death”) from Richard Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde explores metaphysical ideas through trailblazing musical sonorities. Gustav Mahler’s Totenfeier (Funeral Rites) eventually became the opening movement of his monumental Second Symphony. Artistic Director Matthew Aubin directs a recent work by Composition Fellow Horacio Fernandez, as well as Fernande Decruck’s mid-century Concerto for Harp and Orchestra.
