The Hallé - Mahler's 'Resurrection' Symphony on Thursday 23rd May 2019
Mahler - Symphony No.2, ‘Resurrection’
Sir Mark Elder
Anne Schwanewilms, soprano
Alice Coote, mezzo-soprano
Two of the world’s finest artists, Anne Schwanewilms and Alice Coote, join Sir Mark, the orchestra and the Hallé Choir for this truly epic concert. It promises to be an unforgettable experience. The highly dramatic first movement of Mahler’s Second Symphony portrays a superman’s titanic struggle with fate. The second and third movements offer contrast, the text of the latter describing St Anthony’s sermon to the fishes. Then, the orchestra falls silent as the mezzo-soprano soloist enters in magical fashion, the resolute voice of faith. Finally, voices, orchestra and organ combine in what is probably the greatest vision of redemption and re-birth in all music.
