In an ode to the wonder of our natural world, this program reflects on fate, resolve, and reverence. Contemporary composer Iman Habibi’s Jeder Baum spricht (“every tree speaks,” taken from Beethoven’s writings) is a reflection of our world’s environmental crisis. Schumann’s symphony is a celebration of spring and renewal. In the second half, the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus takes the spotlight in three choral works moving through grim fatalism, hopeful spirit, and rollicking celebration.
