Gustav Mahler in 1892

Gustav Mahler in 1892

By E. Bieber - Kohut, Adolph (1900) "Gustav Mahler" in Berühmte israelitische Männer und Frauen in der Kulturgeschichte der Menschheit (Volume 1 ed.), Leipzig, Germany: Druck und Verlag von A. H. Payne, pp. p. 143

On this week's Prairie Performances, Friday night at 7 pm on WILL-FM 90.9: Enjoy "Magnificent Masters", a concert presented by the Illinois Symphony Orchestra led by Alastair Willis.  Mezzo-soprano Julie Boulianne is featured in three arias by Mozart along with his overture to "The Marriage of Figaro".  Gustav Mahler 's heavenly Fourth Symphony fills the second half of the program, and again Ms Bouliane favors us with her “subtle and pure” mezzo-soprano.
