Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

G. Mahler: Symphony No. 6 conducted by Lahav Shani

Description Program Artists

All events for the second half of the 2020–2021 season are still planned, but cannot currently be booked. Advance ticket sales have been interrupted. The current experience with the coronavirus pandemic has shown us that in the event of strong demand (above the currently permitted 500 guests), advance sales can only be expanded once the official approval has been given to open the hall accordingly. We will continue to publish or confirm the final program six weeks before the scheduled event.

With their Beethoven program, Lahav Shani and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra electrified the Festspielhaus audience. We look forward to building on this success with a monumental symphony: Mahler’s Sixth may be known as the “Tragic,” but it is much more than that alone. Here its creator’s vision of portraying a whole world within a symphony becomes a reality. And this “world” is amazingly true-to-life: one theme depicts Mahler’s wife Alma, while later the orchestra plays cowbells, a rute, a tambourine and, not to be forgotten, a hammer – for the famous hammer blows in the finale.
