Fort Worth Symphony Launches Its First Mahler Symphony Cycle

Classic Arts News   Fort Worth Symphony Launches Its First Mahler Symphony Cycle
In what the Dallas Morning News's critic calls "quite a daring move," the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra begins its first-ever Mahler cycle this weekend, playing three symphonies — the First, Ninth and Fifth — on three successive evenings.

FWSO music director Miguel Harth-Bedoya conducts all three concerts, which are tonight, tomorrow and Sunday at 7:30 p.m. This evening's concert will be broadcast live on WRR 101.1 FM in Dallas-Fort Worth and streamed over the Web at, beginning at 7 p.m. U.S. Central time / 8 p.m. U.S. Eastern time.

While a Mahler symphony cycle may be a new endeavor for the FWSO, pre-season Great Performance festivals devoted to a single composer are not: since 2002 Harth-Bedoya and the orchestra have spent the last full weekend in August exploring Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Brahms and Tchaikovsky. The orchestra will cover the remaining six Mahler symphonies in mini-festivals prior to the next two seasons.
