Broken by grief, a man stands by the grave of a friend. But that's just the start of an incredible journey. Mahler's epic Resurrection Symphony sweeps through storms, love songs, tragedy and triumph to the end of the world itself - and beyond. Peter Oundjian, the RSNO and the RSNO Chorus are joined by two truly world-class soloists to launch the RSNO's Anniversary Season in a blaze of pure, soaring inspiration.
