Jan Wagner performs with the OSV
The Orquesta Sinfónica Venezuela (OSV), “Artistic Patrimony of the Nation” and the Hilton Caracas announce the opening concert of the second part of its 75th anniversary season featuring the renowned Venezuelan conductor Jan Wagner in a one and only performance of Gustav Mahler’s “Tragic” Sixth Symphony, tonight, at 8 p.m. at the José Félix Ribas Hall of the Teresa Carreño Theater.


This concert is being held in special dedication to the many cultural journalists and reporters of Venezuela who have helped make possible the cultural diffusion of the OSV and its musical activities.
In representation of these journalists, the OSV will pay a well deserved homage to Lic. Germán Alirio Luna Chacón, who is the host of the radio program “Preludio” on Jazz 95.5 FM., transmitted every Sunday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
A work of monumental proportions, Mahler’s sixth symphony is considered to be one of the strangest if not the darkest of all his symphonies. Composed during the summers of 1903 and 1904, it was premiered in 1906 under the baton of the composer who would later make a number of significant changes to the work including the order of the second and third movements. Many consider this to be Mahler’s own foreseen musical autobiography, predicting a dark picture of both personal and world occurrences.
Wagner, who will conduct this piece for the first time in the orchestra’s 75 years of existence, is currently an Associate Professor of Music at the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music in Virginia.
He was the musical director of the Odense Symphony in Denmark for five years prior to his appointment in Virginia, and was the first Venezuelan to ever receive the title of “Musical Director” of a Scandinavian orchestra.
Since 2004, he has been the Artistic Director of the performing Arts Festival “Shenandoah Performs”. He continues to guest conduct many of the best orchestras throughout the U.S. and Europe.
Tickets are Bs.5,000.
