    Overview

    SAWYERS Symphony No. 5 (World Premiere)
    MAHLER Symphony No. 5

    The Colorado MahlerFest Orchestra with Artistic Director Kenneth Woods returns to the Macky stage. Mahler’s fifth symphony, composed in 1901-02, is one of Mahler’s most famous and features the Adagietto movement. This famous movement, used in the film The Death in Venice, was a love letter to Alma Schindler, whom he had only recently met but would marry in 1902. The concert will also include the world premiere of a new symphony written during the pandemic by leading British symphonist, Philip Sawyers. Sawyers is the visiting composer of this year’s festival.
