The New York Philharmonic with their conductor Jaap van Zweden will be visiting the Barbican Hall for a two-day residency, and we will be with them for a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 (the so-called Resurrection Symphony).

The LSO observes that the conductor is intensely aware of his illustrious heritage. “The New York Philharmonic carries the DNA of all the great conductors and all the great concerts with them” he says. “My tradition and their tradition meet in the middle of time”.

Never a piece for the faint-hearted, Mahler 2 contains one of the great choral climaxes of any symphony. It was one of Mahler’s most popular and successful works during his lifetime. It was voted the fifth-greatest symphony of all time in a survey of conductors carried out by the BBC Music Magazine.
