Why See Seattle Symphony - Mahler Resurrection Symphony?
A Rousing Start To Seattle Symphony's New Season
The Seattle Symphony sets its new season off to a rousing start with songs of death, rebirth and new life in this series of concerts featuring Berlioz's soul-stirring operatic piece Death Of Cleopatra and Mahler's Megalithic Resurrection Symphony. Helmed by resident conductor Ludovic Morlot, the programme features Swedish soprano Malin Christensson, Dutch Mezzo-Soprano Christianne Stotijn and the Seattle Symphony Chorale.
Considered his most popular work during his lifetime, Mahler's show-stopping second symphony was inspired by his belief in the beauty of the afterlife. It explores the many facets of the existential journey from the last moments of life (embodied in Mahler's infamous death shriek, which must be felt and heart to be understood) into triumphant resurrection with the finale to end all finales.
Opening night: 21 September 2017
