Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra: Mahler Symphony No 2
Sponsored by BP
The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra performs one of the grandest and most moving pieces in the entire orchestral repertoire: Mahler’s Second Symphony.
Tracing a journey from funereal despair to the blazing light of rebirth, the Symphony combines moments of hair-raising terror with passages of poignant intimacy. The spiritual exaltation of its thunderous conclusion, complete with chorus, crashing tam tams and tolling bells, is unforgettable.
Jansons is joined by the renowned Austrian soprano Genia Kühmeier, acclaimed for her immaculate delivery, and the great Swedish mezzo soprano Anna Larsson, as well as the massed forces of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus.
