Classic Intro, 30 March only 6.15pm (Music Room) - Norman Lebrecht, one of the most widely-read commentators on music, culture and politics, regular presenter on BBC Radio 3 and author of Why Mahler? returns to Liverpool to discuss Mahler's Symphony No.5.

A lone trumpet sounds in the darkness and Gustav Mahler begins his great struggle from tragedy to triumph – by way of midnight storms, joyous horn-calls, and the most tender love-letter ever written without words: the rapturous Adagietto. “The symphony should be like the world” said Mahler; and with Vasily Petrenko conducting, 70 minutes of music becomes the emotional experience of a lifetime. To start, rarities from a close friend of Mahler’s youth – the doomed genius Hugo Wolf. Played together, they’re a revelation.
