Hear the full power of the LSO, soloists and chorus, as they take on Mahler’s epic ‘Resurrection’ Symphony. The LSO will be at full strength as Semyon Bychkov takes to the podium for one of Mahler’s most successful works, his Second Symphony. Calling for enormous orchestral forces, the work requires ‘the largest possible contingent of strings’, expanded brass, percussion and woodwind, an organ, plus the London Symphony Chorus. Expect a rousing and intoxicating spectacle of sound as Mahler balances the epic with the delicate, the desperate with the joyous. The symphony is an uplifting battle to overcome death, from the anguished first movement to the lush and passionate (and loud) finale. Soloists are Christiane Karg (soprano) and Anna Larsson (alto). Recorded at the Barbican Hall, London in February 2018.
