Lang-Lessing on Mahler’s 3rd Symphony

This weekend sees the final concerts of the San Antonio Symphony’s classical series for this season, and Mahler’s 3rd Symphony will be performed. In this video clip our conductor, Sebastian Lang-Lessing, is discussing that piece.

Of course, I’m intending to be in my seat at the Majestic Theatre on Friday night for this.

Yes, I have Friday night plans.

“Good Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise,” as we used to say in my long ago, country-fied, small town days (Not that there’s anything wrong with those days. Sometimes I miss their slower, more relaxed pace. But I’ve moved on from them to a faster paced, more pressured, bigger city lifestyle.), I will be sitting in my regular seat at the Majestic Theatre enjoying a concert by the San Antonio Symphony.

Friday

Hmm… I did not know about this!

I’ll have to check my schedule and see if I’m free on the evening of 23rd May. The link in this tweet gives information about a concert I’d really like to hear!
