Bamberger Symphoniker

Jakub Hrůša, Conductor ; Gustav Mahler: Symphony “Resurrection”

Description Program Artists

It’s sure to be included in a canon of classics: Mahler's “Resurrection” Symphony, one of the most popular orchestral works of all time, will be performed by the Bamberger Symphoniker, whose latest Mahler recordings brought home all the major awards. A characteristic example of the powerful aesthetic that prevailed around 1900, this monumental symphony featuring choir, solo voice, and off-stage orchestra is hard to surpass in terms of effect. Its structure anticipated the cinematic melodrama: each “scene” escalates into a “catastrophe,” which is followed by the next “scene” – and then the next catastrophe. "I will die in order to live!" the choir proclaims ecstatically. The core of this symphony is life itself, it is addressed to faltering mankind with all our metamorphoses.
