Pretty Yende

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage

Michael Tilson Thomas makes his MET Orchestra debut conducting Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, a dazzling Mozart motet, and a work by Ruggles—a composer, like Mahler, for whom Tilson Thomas has a special affinity. Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate is wonderfully exuberant and culminates in spectacular coloratura fireworks that are ideally suited to the “silky, flexible sound” (The New York Times) of soprano Pretty Yende. She also sings the child’s praise of heavenly joys in the finale of Mahler’s symphony, a work that glows with a sense of wonder and magic.
