In the second of their two Proms appearances, Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra are joined by the Bavarian Radio Symphony Choir for Mahler's magnificent 2nd Symphony, the 'Resurrection' Symphony. It begins with a depiction of a funeral procession and opens out into a vision of life after death, with soprano and alto soloists joining for the last two movements and a choral climax making an unmissable impact.
