Mahler and Strauss

Stephen Alltop, music director and conductor
Amanda Majeski, soprano

Join CUSO as the season opens with the late Romantic music of Gustav Mahler and Richard Strauss. Strauss’ sumptuous Four Last Songs will feature Metropolitan Opera star Amanda Majeski, one of the brightest vocal talents of our time. Opera News wrote of Majeski’s singing: “Just the type of glowing soprano voice with which Strauss had a lifelong love affair.” Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 5 is a dramatic journey, from its dark opening fanfare to the famous Adagietto and the resounding conclusion.
