    Tonight through Monday, the Oregon Symphony brings its 120th classical season to a close with just one work on the final program, but what a work it is: Gustav Mahler's epic Symphony No. 2 .

Organizers of Soluna had the smart idea of presenting Mendelssohn's music interspersed with--and sometimes, as intended, accompanying--excerpts of the Shakespeare play.
