Mahler: Symphony No. 2 in C Minor, “Resurrection”

  • Mahler’s most popular and successful work during his lifetime
  • The uplifting and sublime final movement features the TSO Chorus and soloists
  • The final movement has drawn comparisons with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 because both use a chorus as the centerpiece of a long movement
  • Voted the fifth-greatest symphony of all time in a survey of conductors by BBC Music Magazine
