About the Performance

Chief Conductor Marin Alsop and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra take the stage of Ravinia's Pavilion for Gustav Mahler's final major work for orchestra, Symphony No. 9. Voted as the greatest symphony of all-time in BBC Music Magazine, the evening-long work has beguiled audiences since its 1912 premiere by Bruno Walter and the Vienna Philharmonic. "It is music coming from another world," said Herbert von Karajan. "It is coming from eternity."
