KUAF Sunday Symphony for July 12, 2015: Mahler's 'Ferocious & Nightmarish Fantasies'

 Tim Page writes in the liner notes to Mahler's 2nd symphony recorded by the New York Philharmonic under Bernstein, that Mahler's 2nd "provides a persuasive and representative summary... with its colorful orchestration, elaborate ambition, confessional qualities, extreme subjectivity and, finally, that unmistakably Mahlerian mixture of the nostalgic and passionate set cheek-by-jowl with ferocious and nightmarish fantasias."

Catch the entirety of Mahler's Symphony No. 2 plus Brahms 4, also recorded by the NYP and Bernstein, on this week's KUAF Sunday Symphony, which airs at 1 p.m. on KUAF-2 and 7:30 p.m. on KUAF 91.3 FM.
