Broken by grief, a man stands by the grave of a friend – but that’s just the start of an incredible journey. Mahler’s epic ‘Resurrection’ symphony sweeps through storms, love songs, tragedy and transcendence, to the end of the world itself – and beyond. Vasily Petrenko, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the Choir are joined by Miah Persson and Artist in Residence, Jennifer Johnston, for a concert that begins with Mahler at his most magical – songs which inspired the Symphony – and ends with him embracing the universe.

Vasily Petrenko will provide an introduction from stage before this concert, to help you get even more from the experience.
