This program highlights music from La Belle Epoque, roughly 1890 to 1915. While Mahler was actively writing his expansive symphonies, composers throughout the world were pursuing equally creative and ground-breaking new paths in composition while others clung to the traditions of the nineteenth century. The evening will focus on both in a program that includes works by Charles Loeffler, Dvořák, and Charles Ives.
