At least, that was the sense one had recently, when Guerrero led the Nashville Symphony Orchestra in a bracing rendition of Mahler's Symphony No. 2 in C minor at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Mahler's Second Symphony is nicknamed the "Resurrection," and appropriately enough, Guerrero and his forces gave it a heaven-storming performance. This was an interpretation that had everything: violent eruptions, sudden silences, melting lyricism and a final, triumphant ascent to the summit of sonic bliss. More
