Masterclass with the Most Magnificent Masterpieces
The premiere of Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 was not a great success. Was the orchestration too daring, or was it that the changes in mood were too extreme? Mahler himself didn’t know either: “Sometimes it sent shivers down my spine. Damn it all, where do people keep their ears and their hearts if they can’t hear that!” Today, Mahler’s symphonic firstborn is considered one of the most remarkable works of the late 19th century. Chief conductor Nicholas Collon and his Residentie Orkest dive into the depths of this piece of musical heritage.
A complete evening!
