Matthias Goerne guests with PJ and the CSO

After an absence of almost a month, conducting 13 concerts all over Germany with the Munich Philharmonic and the Staatskapelle Dresden, a rested and ready Paavo returns to his Music Hall podium with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra this week for a program featuring compositions by Beethoven and Mahler. Baritone Matthias Goerne, an exceptional singer of international prominence, makes a rare concert appearance at the personal invitation of Paavo and performs another rarity: the complete “Youth’s Magic Horn” song cycle.

This week's program features Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 in C Major and Mahler's Lieder aus Des Knaben Wunderhorn ("The Youth's Magic Horn").

Concert dates are Friday, November 4 at 8 pm and Saturday, November 5 at 8 pm.

Ticket information is available by calling (513) 381-3300 or by visiting cincinnatisymphony.org.

This program will air via streaming audio on WGUC, 90.9 FM, Sunday, January 22, 2006 at 7:30 pm ET.
