Clarinet Concerto


Das klagende Lied

Concert length 1 hour 45 minutes

Two knights vie for the hand of the imperious Queen in Mahler's imaginative fairy tale of chivalry and ambition, Das klagende Lied, showcasing the 190 member-strong Dallas Symphony Chorus. 

Echoes of jazz and popular music infuse Copland’s Clarinet Concerto, performed by Principal Clarinet Gregory Raden. Originally composed for the legendary bandleader Benny Goodman, Raden brings sophistication and flair to this masterpiece of American expression. 

Special Note: Soprano Susanna Phillips is under doctor’s orders not to travel at this time and will be unable to perform with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra next weekend. We are fortunate that the American soprano TWYLA ROBINSON is able to appear as our soloist, performing soprano soloist in Mahler’s Das klagende Lied in concerts on May 27 and 28.
