ABOUT THE PROGRAM

A live performance of Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony is always more than a concert—it is a communal experience. This overwhelming, heaven-storming symphony takes the listener on a long journey towards an exalted destination. It starts by laying the hero of Mahler’s First Symphony, the Titan, to rest, with a shatteringly dramatic, annihilating funeral march. And then the rest of the symphony builds a new pathway to hope and ultimate affirmation. In the second and third movements a critical eye scans both the beauty and the absurdity of this world. And in the final two movements the transition is effected from earthly striving and insufficiency to heavenly fulfillment. There is no work in the repertory, none whatsoever, that so completely unites performers and audience in a transformative musical affirmation. We are extraordinarily fortunate in our vocal soloists for this performance.

This is a live concert that will be live streamed! Be sure to read through our support page for Boston Philharmonic virtual events.
