Mahlerís Resurrection Symphony starts with a funeral march, and finishes with the end of the world itself. And if that sounds like a spectacular opening to our season, just wait till you hear Andris Nelsons, a super-size CBSO and the massed voices of the CBSO Chorus committing body and soul to some of the most thrilling, heart-lifting music ever composed. Richard Straussís impassioned wartime masterpiece makes Mahlerís vision shine even more brightly. After this summerís residency at the prestigious Lucerne Festival, this is sure to be a momentous opening to the CBSO season.
