Mahler: ‘Symphony of a Thousand'
Add this event to your Google Calendar.
It is a cause for celebration for any conductor and any orchestra when they get the chance to perform Mahler's Eighth Symphony in front of an audience: the world premiere of the work, conducted by Mahler himself, employed more than a thousand participants on stage. Although the composer never embraced the name ‘Symphony of a Thousand', this phrase still captures something of the extraordinary dimensions of the composition. As the composer himself put it, it was "the most magnificent of anything I have yet written. The work is so unique in terms of content and form that it is impossible to speak of it.”
