Hampson sings Whitman, NY plays Mahler

Join us tonight at 7 to hear Thomas Hampson sing "The Wound-Dresser" - John Adams' setting of poetry of Walt Whitman about the experience of nursing in the Civil War. The New York Philharmonic also performs Gustav Mahler's Symphony no. 2, "The Resurrection." The New York Times wrote that Adams' "music is driven by Whitman’s words, set with a deft blend of aching lyricism and conversational naturalness. Mr. Hampson brought myriad colorings to his singing." Alan Gilbert conducts.
