On this week's Prairie Performances, Friday night at 7 pm on WILL-FM 90.9, hear The Symphony No. 2 by Gustav Mahler, known as the Resurrection Symphony, which was first performed in 1895. Apart from the Eighth Symphony, this symphony was Mahler's most popular and successful work during his lifetime.
