The Big City

”The more susbtantial an individual’s aesthetic experience is, the sounder his taste, the sharper his moral focus, the freer—though not necessarily the happier—he is.."

One of the casualties of music shutting down was the New York Philharmonic’s Mahler in New York mini-festival, which was to be a prelude to their performances at the Concertgebouw for the Mahler Festival there—also cancelled.

Instead, the Phil is presenting Mahler’s New York: A Digital Festival, running from tonight through April 30. This will be a series of video broadcasts, archived but streaming on a real-time basis. Tonight, 7:30, is Symphony No. 1, back from the Loren Maazel era, which if I recall well was a fine performance.
