Mahler's Ninth on New Releases, Saturday, June 15th
Tune in this Saturday, June 15th, after the opera, when Mark Pinto will host a special New Releases. He's stretching out and broadcasting for us Mahler's last completed symphony, the Ninth. We can't spill the beans on whose recording it is, but it's gotten raves! You will not be disappointed.
If you have the time to tune in just for this monument of orchestral literature, get to your radio or point your browser to wrti.org by about 4:15 pm.
Gustav Mahler finished this symphony in 1909 but never lived to hear it, dying two years later while working on his Tenth. But we can hear it Saturday on the radio! It's the Symphony No. 9 of Gustav Mahler, Saturday afternoon on WRTI, after the opera, on New Releases with Mark Pinto.
