Mahler's Fifth Symphony
Immerse yourself in the universe of Gustav Mahler’s fifth symphony, which spans the multitude and complexity of human feelings and experience. Through the brilliant sounds of the Orchestra led by Music Director Rune Bergmann, it conveys an emotional odyssey, from dark tragedy to exultant joy. In between, we have glimpses of paradise and the macabre, along with tender passion in the Adagietto movement, which is said Mahler wrote as a declaration of love to his wife Alma.
