Mahler: Symphony No 2 ‘Resurrection’

The exceptional orchestra launch the 2019 Usher Hall Series with one of the grandest and most gripping of symphonies.

The exceptional players of the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Gustavo Dudamel, in the second of their special three-concert residency at International Festival 2019, launch the 2019 Usher Hall concerts with one of the grandest and most gripping of symphonies.

The Resurrection collides hair-raising terror with heartrending tenderness, and the intense spiritual euphoria of its overwhelming choral conclusion – complete with organ, crashing gongs and tolling bells – is simply spectacular.

Make an unforgettable odyssey through funereal despair to the blazing light of rebirth – in Mahler’s magnificent hymn of joy to creation.
