Mahler: Symphony No. 2
Semyon Bychkov leads the London Symphony Orchestra through one of Gustav Mahler’s most successful works, his Second Symphony. Drawing upon enormous orchestral forces and the “largest possible contingent of strings”, this performance also features soprano Christiane Karg and alto Anna Larson. Often known as the 'Resurrection' Symphony, Mahler’s monumental masterpiece depicts an emotional battle with death, concluding in an epic and passionate celebration of a soul's return to life.
