PORTLAND — The Portland Symphony Orchestra will conclude its 2012-13 season with two performances of Mahler’s Symphony, No. 5 conducted by music director Robert Moody at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 5 and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 7.

The entire program will be dedicated to

’s emotional, passionate Symphony No. 5 in memory of victims of the Boston Marathon. The symphony’s full efforts are focused on creating the most poignant journey of this Mahler symphony possible, striving for a time of catharsis through music. The work is famous for its funereal trumpet solo at the opening and the Adagiatto, Mahler’s most frequently performed piece, originally composed as a love letter to his wife.
