Andris Nelsons, conductor

All good things come to an end. And on what are sure to be emotional evenings, Andris Nelsons has chosen to say farewell to Birmingham with Mahler's huge, rapturous hymn to nature - both unchanging, and forever renewing. A beautiful new choral work by Andris's fellow-Latvian Eriks Ešenvalds - jointly commissioned with Andris's new orchestra in Boston - brings the orchestra, choruses, audience and conductor together to celebrate seven inspirational years.
