‘Try to imagine the whole universe beginning to ring and resound’, declared Gustav Mahler. ‘There are no longer human voices, but planets and suns revolving.’ And with multiple choirs, eight world-class soloists and a supersized orchestra, it’s easy to see why Mahler’s Eighth is often called the ‘Symphony of a Thousand’. Tonight, though, Vladimir Jurowski and the Orchestra probe beneath its spectacular surface, and prepare the way with Tallis’s transcendent 40-part motet choral masterpiece Spem in Alium. Book early for what’s certain to be a real landmark in Vladimir Jurowski’s LPO Mahler cycle.

Concert supported by an anonymous donor.
