Gustav Mahler

Performance Today for Friday, March 8, 2013

Gustav Mahler never called his Symphony No. 2 the "Resurrection Symphony." But the name has stuck. It has resonated because his subject matter was death, and redemption, and Resurrection. We'll bring you highlights from Mahler's Resurrection Symphony from a concert in New York.
