Resurrection

Mahler's gargantuan Symphony No 2 performed by Anne Schwanewilms, Alice Coote and the Halle choir and orchestra under Sir Mark Elder, live from Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.

Mahler may have avoided definitive programmatic statements about his gargantuan Symphony No 2 but it is no great leap to suggest that in it we hear such fundamental topics as death, nature, redemption and re-birth. Tonight, two of the world’s finest artists, Anne Schwanewilms and Alice Coote join the Hallé to perform it live from Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. Tom Redmond presents.
