Kentucky Symphony Orchestra

50% Off “A Parting Opus”

Member Experience

On January 29, 2022, the KSO returns to the venue of its very first concert in 1992 — Greaves Concert Hall (NKU) — for Gustav Mahler’s final complete composition — his Symphony No. 9. It is a poignant musical farewell penned by one of the first international conductor-composers who bridged the 19th & 20th centuries and expanded the symphonic form to its limit. The recent loss of his 7-year-old daughter and his own fatal heart condition diagnosis no doubt influenced Mahler’s reflective and highly regarded work. The KSO has offered commissions to U.S. Poet Laureates to write poetry inspired by Mahler’s 9th Symphony. As a reflective summation of their own lives and works, these original poems will be juxtaposed with the KSO’s performance of Mahler’s parting opus.
