The Louisville Orchestra presents its next evening concert in the Classics Series Friday, October 29 at 8:00 p.m. This year has celebrated the great cities of classical music and the focus for Friday night at Whitney Hall is Vienna.

The program will feature German Romantic-era composer Johannes Brahms' Tragic Overture, which premiered in Vienna in 1880, as well as his Variations on a Theme of Joseph Haydn. The latter work was first performed by the Vienna Philarharmonic Orchestra in 1873, conducted by Brahms himself. Capping off the evening is Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 4 in G Major.

Mahler graduated from the Vienna Conservatory in 1878 and went on to serve as Principal Conductor of the Vienna Philharmonic. His Symphony No. 4 includes the song "Das himmlische Leben" in the final movement, which will be sung by soprano Hana Park. Park has recently performed the role of Mimi in La Boheme for Wolf Trap Opera and is a doctoral student at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

Single tickets range from $20-$75 and are available by calling 502.584.7777 or visiting LouisvilleOrchestra.org.
