Petrenko conducts Mahler
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

Petrenko conducts Mahler

Victoria Borisova-Ollas Remember Me Giselle: Cello Concerto (UK premiere, co-commission with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra)
Mahler Symphony No.5

Vasily Petrenko conductor
Truls Mørk cello

A trumpet sounds in the darkness, and Conductor Laureate Vasily Petrenko and the Orchestra plunge into the terror, the glory and the soaring romance of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony. There are horn-calls and funeral marches, hymns of triumph and Viennese waltzes, and above all, the heart-rending Adagietto - Mahler’s unforgettable musical love-letter to his young wife. This is music that’s larger than life, so we’ve paired it with Remember Me Giselle by Victoria Borisova- Ollas – a composer from Vladivostok with a flair for drama.

Post-concert Question Time - starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (Music Room) with Vasily Petrenko and Truls Mørk.
