About

Join the Philharmonia Orchestra to experience the tragedy and triumph of Mahler's Fifth, conducted by Jakub Hrusa.

After the first rehearsal for the premiere of his Fifth Symphony, Mahler wrote to his wife Alma of a symphony in which `new worlds are forever being engendered, only to crumble into ruin this foaming, roaring, raging sea of sound dancing stars, to these breathtaking, iridescent, and flashing breakers'.

Beginning with a lone trumpet call, Mahler's symphony summons forth a wall of sound. It journeys from the tragic despair of the first movement to the lasting triumph of the finale via a withdrawal into the achingly beautiful Adagietto movement scored for gossamer like harp and strings.

Also hear the the `enthralling interpretative integrity' (The Guardian) of Piotr Anderszewski's pianism, in Beethoven's First Piano Concerto.
