Esa-Pekka Salonen – Violin Concerto
Mahler – Symphony No. 5

Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero
, conductor | Jennifer Koh, violin

Mahler's Fifth Symphony opens with a lone trumpet, but it unfolds into an awe-inspiring, kaleidoscopic journey that travels through radiant highs and profound depths, before closing in a blaze of glory. And there's only one way to experience its sheer brilliance – performed live by Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero and the musicians of the Nashville Symphony, who will be your guides on this epic voyage. Violinist Jennifer Koh joins the orchestra for Esa-Pekka Salonen's Violin Concerto, which is the perfect match for her commanding musicianship, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and assurance.

Come early and learn more about the music at our Classical Conversations with Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero, taking place one hour before the concert in the Balcony Lobby.

Following the concert, Maestro Guerrero will lead an informal Q&A at the back of the concert hall, on the Orchestra Level.
