Mahler Symphony No.5

Vasily Petrenko conductor
Truls Mørk cello

A trumpet sounds in the darkness, and Vasily Petrenko’s year-long Mahler cycle plunges 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 the atmospheric Remember Me Giselle by Victoria Borisova- Ollas – a composer from Vladivostok with a flair for drama.

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