Elisabeth Kulman (mezzo)
The Bach Choir
BBC Symphony Chorus
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor)
In this season's second Mahler symphony, the composer wrestles with the essential questions of humanity in a work that took over six years to complete. Faith, mortality and the hope of resurrection are the subject of this epic musical exploration, which culminates in a glowing, transcendent choral finale. The BBC Symphony Orchestra and its Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo are joined by soloists Elizabeth Watts and Elisabeth Kulman as well as the combined forces of the BBC Symphony Chorus and The Bach Choir for a work whose scale and scope come into their own in the Royal Albert Hall.
Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.
Producer Graham Rogers.
