In his final appearance of the season at Carnegie Hall, Michael Tilson Thomas plays the Ninth Symphony by Mahler. Since Tilson was thirteen years old he had been inspired by Mahler’s symphonic music. This performance is a tribute to Tilson Thomas’s lifelong love for Mahler’s music. Along with composer Samuel Carl Adams, Tilson Thomas brings Mahler’s symphony back to life.
Mahler composed his Ninth Symphony in 1909 after the tragic death of his four year old daughter. He had just found out about his heart disease before he wrote the symphony. The ailment took his life two years later. Hence, the Ninth Symphony is the last symphony completed by Mahler. It takes on a journey of a bold declaration of life and acceptance of death. In his symphony Mahler expresses the mortal nature of man sooner or later consumed by death. In expressing his understanding of mortality Mahler created music that made him an immortal in the history of music. This music inspired Tilson Thomas to begin his career with the San Francisco Symphony in 1974.
