Mozart and Mahler
Heidi Meier, soprano; Christof Perick, conductor

Mozart: Abduction from the Seraglio, Overture
Mahler: Symphony No. 1, "Titan"

Heidi Meier and Christof Perick

WDAV broadcast the season-opener of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra live from the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra’s Mozart and Mahler concert program was led by CSO Music Director Christof Perick and featured soprano soloist Heidi Meier, who thrilled CSO audiences last May with her acclaimed performance in Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. In this program, Maestro Perick and the CSO lifted the curtain on their new season with the Overture from Mozart’s 1785 opera The Abduction from the Seraglio. Ms. Meier then appeared with the CSO to sing a pair of concert scenes from the opera, which was the most popular and frequently-staged of all Mozart’s operas during the composer’s lifetime. The second half of the program was devoted to Gustav Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 1 – the so-called “Titan”

Saturday, September 13, 8 p.m., live broadcast
