STRAUSS: Four Last Songs
MAHLER: Symphony No. 5

Amanda Majeski, soprano

Join CUSO as we open the season with the late Romantic music of Mahler and Strauss. Strauss’ sumptuous Four Last Songs will feature Metropolitan Opera star Amanda Majeski, one of the brightest vocal talents of our time. Opera News wrote of Majeski’s singing:

“Just the type of glowing soprano voice with which Strauss had a lifelong love affair.”

Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 5 is a dramatic journey, from its dark opening fanfare to the famous Adagietto and the resounding conclusion.
