Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection”
Our Classic season culminates in one of the greatest of symphonic musical journeys from grief, following the death of a friend, to resolution, peace, and the beauty of afterlife and resurrection. The inclusion of vocal soloists and chorus draws comparisons with Beethoven’s own majestic choral symphony.
