Mahler, Symphony No. 1 “The Titan”
The Hop’s resident orchestra embarks on an exciting partnership with Italy’s Conservatory of Siena by welcoming as soloist its director, esteemed flutist and teacher Tristaino. He leads the orchestra in an early 19th-century Romantic gem full of rich bel canto lyricism, complemented by Mahler’s First, which transformed the symphony in ways that still amaze the ears!
