About This Performance

The astounding Yuja Wang collaborates with Dudamel to give the first-ever performances of John Adams’ newest piano concerto, paired with Mahler’s beloved song-filled symphony, rife with quintessential Mahlerian touches: nature-inspired lyricism, a funeral march, and explosive crescendos.
