conductor Lahav Shani
cello Nicolas Altstaedt
Mahler First symfonie
Mahler was 24 years old when he started sketching his First. For music that evokes such a wealth of images – from stillness to nature to klezmer eruptions – it is hard to believe that this was his symphonic debut. It was with this score that Lahav Shani, also at the age of 24, made his international breakthrough as a conductor. His mastery, already astonishing then, has only deepened ever since. Equally impressive is Nicolas Altstaedt, who opens this concert program as a soloist with Schelomo. Music with an exuberant richness of colors and fierce drama, perfect for this top cellist – 'breathtakingly powerful and poetic', writes NRC Handelsblad.
Introduction on Thursday at 7:15 pm and on Sunday at 1:15 pm by Gijsbert Kok.
