conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin
Mahler Symphony No. 5
From the dark into the light: Mahler’s Fifth takes the audience on a journey to the end of the night. Using a sinister funeral march as the starting signal, the symphony quickly lands in more shadowy territory. A tender Adagietto ‘so beautiful that it moves you to tears’ – as Volkskrant described our performance under Yannick Nézet-Séguin – provides a moment of tranquillity; the glorious finale heralds a radiant new day.
