    The 2010-11 season is a major one for Gustav Mahler’s music. 2010 marks the 150th anniversary of Mahler’s birth, and 2011 the centennial of his death. The Second Symphony is the first of the three so-called “Wunderhorn” symphonies, tied closely to Mahler’s individual song settings of poetry from the folk poetry collection Des Knaben Wunderhorn (“The Boy’s Magic Horn”). Both soloists are making their BSO subscription series debuts. Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill sings the lovely song “Urlicht,” the fourth movement of the symphony, and joins the young American soprano Layla Claire and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus in the finale’s setting of Klopstock’s “Resurrection Ode.”
