Mahler: Love and Death

We continue our celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Mahler's birth with Bernard Haitink conducting his 'Resurrection' Symphony and Simon Keenlyside in the Rückert-Lieder.

With Louise Fryer.
Aon3 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Gustav Mahler with an occasional series of 5 weeks celebrating various facets of his life and work. This week the fundamentally Mahlerian themes of Love and Death form the basis of the programming, and there are several chances to hear works performed recently at the Proms.

Mahler : Love and Death
Another chance to hear the Rotterdam Philharmonic at the Proms recently, including Mahler's highly romantic "Ruckert Lieder", sung by Simon Keenlyside. Mahler's 2nd Symphony "Resurrection" charts the composer's attitudes towards death and the afterlife.
