The final concert of the season on Sunday August 18 at 4:00 pm is Mahler's Symphony No. 2, one of the most vast, complex, intimate, personal, despairing, triumphant pieces ever composed. Alan Fletcher talks with the two vocal soloists in this week's High Notes. Alan also talks with pianist Jonathan Biss.

Summer classical music host Chris Mohr is coming back to Aspen. He has loved classical music since he was twelve. “And I owe it all to radio,” Chris explains. “I grew up in a farm town east of Cleveland. Most of the music I heard growing up was Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, and other favorites of my parents.
