#ThrowbackThursday to the beginning of this season when the Orchestra performed Mahler's Symphony No. 5. The Cleveland Orchestra will play Mahler again in Miami, January 24 & 25. https://www.clevelandorchestra.c... The Cleveland Orchestra Franz Welser-Möst, conductor Miami, Florida Knight Concert Hall Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County MAHLER - Symphony No. 5 Mahler called his Fifth Symphony a “foaming, roaring, raging sea of sound.” It begins simply enough, with a lone trumpet fanfare, but quickly explodes into one of music’s most passionate and thrilling symphonies. The tender Adagietto movement is said to be the composer’s own love letter to his wife, written in their first year of marriage. Today, it is Mahler’s most famous music — Leonard Bernstein led a heart-wrenching performance at Robert Kennedy’s funeral.
