On our next New York Philharmonic broadcast, we feature a 2010 recording of Gustav Mahler’s 6th Symphony conducted by Alan Gilbert. The symphony contains a soaring theme dedicated to Alma Mahler in the first movement and ends with tragic hammer blows. The program opens with two works inspired by magical musical instruments: Mozart’s overture to The Magic Flute and Schubert’s overture to The Magic Harp. Alec Baldwin is your host.


Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Overture to The Magic Flute
Franz Schubert: Overture to The Magic Harp
Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 6
