Bartók, Mahler
Thursday, October 9, 2014

Chicago Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Robert Chen plays Bartók’s two Violin Rhapsodies, impassioned works filled with Hungarian folk music and demanding brilliant virtuosity. Mahler’s gorgeous Fifth Symphony reflects many moments of personal significance to the composer, including the ravishing Adagietto that was a musical love letter to his wife, Alma.
