Like Melancholia, but without the planet

The Albuquerque Philharmonic performs Gustav Mahler's Fourth Symphony on Saturday, Nov. 11. In case you want to know, Mahler leads to modernism; it's thick, voluptuously sad music entwined with an intuitively inventive sense of orchestration and musical storytelling that make this dude's work more than just good, some say. And the writ is all about various intensities as well: This symphony imagines the afterlife of a human child in heaven, with a musical theme taken from an earlier vocal work by Mahler called "Das himmlische Leben" ("The Heavenly Life"). Hannah Stephens and Paul Haung are the featured soprano and violinist, respectively and Roberto Minczuk conducts the N.M. Philharmonic at Popejoy Hall in a reflective rendition of the work of one of the 20th century’s most important composers starting at 6pm. (August March)
