Over the course of its exhilarating 90-minute run, Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony grapples with the greatest questions of existence, ultimately presenting a hopeful and humanist vision. Mahler is recognized as a significant influence during a period of musical transition. “A symphony must be like the whole world… it must embrace everything,” the great composer once said. This monumental work, written for a massive orchestra, soloists, and chorus, testifies to that unshakeable conviction.
• Symphony No. 2 was written by Mahler at the age between the ages of 28 + 34.
• Presented in partnership with Sir Jack Lyons Charitable Trust.
