The Houston Symphony's classical series begins with two visions of The Heavenly Life. Imbued with the rhythms of Czech folk music, Dvorák’s Te Deum evokes a rustic spirituality and features an electrifying ending. Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 conjures a world of innocence and wonder, especially in its vocal finale. A child’s vision of heaven, this song for soprano and orchestra features Mojca Erdmann, who has been praised for the “filigree delicacy” of her voice, which spins “a silver net of glittering jewels” (Opera News).
