83 years after the heart of Rotterdam was destroyed by bombs, the orchestra commemorates the city’s rise from its own ashes with Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony. In overwhelming fashion the symphony paints a vision of apocalypse and resurrection. Fear makes way for rapture: ‘There is no punishment and no reward,’ wrote Mahler. ‘An overwhelming love illuminates our being.’
The concert on Sunday 14 May at 2:15 PM will be livestreamed on Medici.tv.
