It's hard to believe that the 2021-2022 season of The Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra is coming to an end. Back on September 25, 2021, the season of live music, with an actual live audience was able to begin.

Preview Mahler's "Titan"

What is the Music About?

A monumental work written for an enormous orchestra, Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 (known as the “Titan”) is one of the most impressive and audacious first symphonies ever written. The composer’s meshing of traditional and modernist ideas make the piece particularly innovative. His use of bird calls, off-stage trumpets, and optimistic themes evoke youthful vitality, elegance and playfulness.
