DWFC-21-13: Beethovenfest Bonn: Big Orchestra for Mahler's "Resurrection" Symphony, 12/27/2021

Bfc_7853_a_small Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2 is a force to reckon with. Known as the "Resurrection" symphony, it features both tender moments and apocalyptic ones, dancelike melodies but also passages of near chaos, and an energy that inspires one to forge onward. In other words, it was the perfect piece to conclude the 2021 Beethovenfest. The festival even borrowed its motto "Rise again, yes, rise again" from the final movement's chorus. In the last episode of this season's Deutsche Welle Festival Concerts, the young charismatic French conductor Maxime Pascale leads the renowned Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the Prague Philharmonic Choir in a stirring performance of this masterpiece that will set your sprits soaring.
