Stroke of genius and late bloomer

»It’s a stroke of genius. This music is immortal,« Anne-Sophie Mutter enthused about Felix Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto back in 2009. The star violinist is not alone in this opinion: since its premiere, the captivating work has delighted performers and audiences alike – no wonder, given the abundance of musical beauty it offers.

At first, Gustav Mahler could only dream of such a sensational success for his Fifth Symphony: »The Fifth is a cursed work. No one understands it,« he grumbled, disappointed about the lack of understanding that the monumental work was met with everywhere. However, it is also possible that Mahler was simply overtaxing the listening habits of the time. Today, Mahler’s Fifth is his most popular symphony and it is impossible to imagine the repertoire of concert halls around the world without it. And when a world-class orchestra like the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra offers a performance, nothing stands in the way of a great concert evening!
