James Levine conducts Mahler

This may very well be the last time James Levine conducts in the Chicago area.  Fittingly, it will be an epic and emptional work - Mahler's Resurrection Symphony with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus featuring soloists Ying Fang and Karen Cargill.

Ravinia Festival presents baritone Matthias Goerne and pianist Alexander Schmalcz

Goerne & Schmalcz's program is the Schumann hit parade: Dichterliebe, the Eichendorff Liederkreis, AND Frauenliebe und -leben.  

For those of you who have never heard this great artist in concert, the editor HIGHLY RECOMMENDS this performance in non-esoteric, overly intellectual repertoire which is often on the program when it concerns Goerne.
