Colin Matthews Metamorphosis
Mahler Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection)
Vladimir Jurowski conductor
Sofia Fomina soprano
Sarah Connolly mezzo-soprano
London Philharmonic Choir
London Youth Choir
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Mahler’s ‘Resurrection’ Symphony starts with a funeral march and finishes in a world reborn. In between come tender memories, distant trumpets and a breathtaking musical panorama of the Day of Judgment itself. It’s an incredible journey, and one that you can only truly experience in a live performance, where you can feel the very air shake. If you only know it from recordings, you haven’t really heard it at all – so join us as Vladimir Jurowski, Sofia Fomina, Sarah Connolly and the combined forces of the London Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra commit body and soul to some of the most visionary music that Mahler ever composed.
Please note there will be no interval during this concert. There will be a short pause between pieces, but please remain seated.
