Edward Gardner brings his “gripping sense of theater” (Star Tribune) to a program filled with bold heroics, stormy outbursts, and the full power of the London Philharmonic Orchestra unleashed. This evening program begins with Beethoven’s galvanizing Egmont Overture, followed by the lush virtuosity of Sibelius’s Violin Concerto with James Ehnes as soloist. The drama peaks in the final work of the evening: Mahler’s towering First Symphony, aptly subtitled “Titan.”
