Selections from symphonies and songs
Inspired by the BSO’s hit CSI: Beethoven program in 2008, this program reenacts the little known meeting in 1910 between Gustav Mahler and famous psychiatrist Dr. Sigmund Freud, where the two grappled with tensions and conflict that affected Mahler’s entire musical output and later led to marital discord. Join Maestra Alsop and “Dr. Freud” on the couch as they psychoanalyze the essence of Mahler’s relationship with his wife Alma, his music and his crippling fear of death.
Join us after the concert for a Q&A with Marin Alsop!
