NEC Philharmonia + Wolff
Boston, Massachusetts
Wednesday, 29 November 2017 - 7:30 PM
Ensemble: NEC Philharmonia
Conductor: Hugh Wolff
Mahler's Symphony No. 9 is one of the composer's monumental works that can command an entire concert program.

During the Mahler centennial season in 2011, Hugh Wolff and David Loebel programmed Symphonies Nos. 1, 3, 4, and 10. Tonight's concert is a return to this pivotal body of work.

This season, Stanford and Norma Jean Calderwood Director of Orchestras Hugh Wolff marks his tenth anniversary at NEC. After opening the Belgian National Orchestra season as their new artistic director, and conducting an evening of French opera in Jordan Hall, Wolff returns to NEC for orchestra programs on November 8 and 29, February 14, and March 14. On April 18, he brings the NEC Philharmonia back to Symphony Hall for the fourth time in his tenure, with a program that includes a new commissioned work by Aaron Jay Kernis, along with music by Bernstein and Debussy.

Welcome to NEC at 150! Every generation of musicians remake and change New England Conservatory. Some, like Gunther Schuller, continue to influence our music beyond their lifetimes. Others contribute for decades, pushing the sense of what's possible by their own examples. The entire season is stuffed with chances to see the NEC legacy in exceptional, infectious, passionate action. Don't miss them!
