Martin Handley presents the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in its season opener, live from The Lighthouse in Poole. Kirill Karabits conducts the orchestra in Ligeti's Lontano. Meaning 'distant', the music repeats the same phrase at different speeds, creating drifting clouds of sound before disappearing to nothing. In contrast the second half is Mahler's mighty Resurrection Symphony for which the orchestra is joined by the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus and soprano Nadine Weissmann.
