Resurrection Symphony

Klaus Mäkelä conducts

Mahler Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection)

The end has come, and in the silence after the Last Trumpet, the song of a solitary bird is the only sound heard on Earth. The ambition of Gustav Mahler’s ‘Resurrection’ Symphony staggers the imagination – an emotional odyssey on a universal scale that begins in tragedy and ends in the rebirth of a universe. In between comes tenderness, rage, pitch-black humour and – yes – the end of the world itself. There isn’t a recording in existence that can do it justice. You simply have to hear it live, and under the brilliant young maestro Klaus Mäkelä, a specially-expanded LPO will give it their all.
