MAHLER Symphony No. 2 "Resurrection"
Everybody wants to experience it again.
OMM revisits Gustav Mahler's Second Symphony eight years after its critically acclaimed 2010 performance, heralded by critics as a musical "tour de force", and "truly, an epic performance."
A symphony like no other, Mahler took six years to perfect this work that changed the musical landscape forever. Combining enormous orchestral forces with a massive chorus and two vocal soloists, the Symphony takes the listener from early solemnity to an apocalyptic conclusion, depicting life, death, and heavenly transcendence.
Come, and it might just change your life.
