Michael Alexander conducts the Georgia Symphony Orchestra in a concert of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 1 ("Titan") and Ernest Bloch's "Sacred Service." Mahler, who declared that "the symphony must be like the world — it must embrace everything," peppers his initial symphonic foray with peasant dances, bird calls, art songs, town bands, rousing fanfares and a famous nursery rhyme. Bloch learned Hebrew specifically to compose his intensely spiritual "Sacred Service." Though he envisioned the work as potentially liturgical, he felt the work to be "more cosmic and universal than Jewish."
