MAHLER Symphony No. 2, "Resurrection"
In 1894, Mahler took the stage with the Berliner Philharmoniker for the first performance of his new “Resurrection” Symphony. Today, under Sir Simon Rattle, this illustrious orchestra’s Mahler is “incisive and impassioned” (The New York Times). On this concert, they are joined by the Westminster Symphonic Choir and soloists to perform the grand, dramatic symphony premiered over a century ago.
