New York Philharmonic: Mahler Symphony No 2

New York Philharmonic
Jaap van Zweden conductor
Joelle Harvey soprano
Sasha Cooke mezzo-soprano
London Symphony Chorus
There will be a pre-concert talk on Mahler's New York at 6.15pm, free to ticket-holders.
Mahlers Resurrection opens on the brink of the abyss and finishes at the end and rebirth of all existence. Every performance is special, but how much more so when the orchestra is Mahlers own?
Jaap van Zweden is intensely aware of that illustrious heritage. The New York Philharmonic carries the DNA of all the great conductors and all the great concerts with them he says. My tradition and their tradition meet in the middle all the time.
But there are unlikely to be any compromises in a work as shattering as Mahlers life-and-death epic: just full-blooded commitment from one of the worlds great orchestras to close their two-concert residency.
