MAHLER Symphony No. 2, "Resurrection"
There is no late seating for this performance. Program is approximately 1 hour, 20 minutes and will be performed without intermission.
Last season, Gergiev brought his Mariinsky Orchestra and Chorus to Carnegie Hall, leaving concertgoers and critics feeling the tragic pain of Berlioz’s Romeo and Juliet. For this concert, he leads the Mariinsky in a powerful ode to the indelible human spirit, perhaps the most beloved of Mahler’s symphonies.
