Season Finale: Mahler Symphony No. 1
Abravanel Hall
123 W S Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA Get Directions



We conclude our Masterworks Season with the return of Mahler’s mighty “Titan,” the work that Thierry Fischer selected to launch the recent series of acclaimed Utah Symphony commercial recordings in 2014. Mahler’s love of nature shines through in this symphony, as does his love of folk culture. And, as with every symphony that followed, Mahler conjures up a complex world of moods and emotions culminating in a triumphant finale. The program opens with Haydn’s Symphony No. 9 and a visually and satirical work by Alfred Schnittke, Moz-Art à la Haydn.

Do you normally take TRAX to the Eccles Theater, Abravanel Hall, or the Rose?  Please be aware that TRAX trains will NOT run on Main Street between the Courthouse and City Center stops from May 4 – June 2.  UTA is working on a rail replacement construction project during that time

UTA will provide shuttle bus service on Main between the Courthouse and City Center stops.  All Red, Green, and Blue line trains will be affected. UTA warns that there will be delays and they recommend using this map and schedule to plan your trips downtown from May 4 – June 2.
