Mahlers Ninth.


  • Klein Partita for strings16′
  • Ullmann Hebrew and Yiddish Folk Songs10′
  • Mahler Symphony No. 987′

Mahler said that a symphony should embrace everything, and he wrote the beat of his own failing heart into a Ninth Symphony like no other – a huge, bittersweet hymn to life. Guest conductor Ilan Volkov knows that no music exists in a vacuum, and by pairing Mahler with music by two composers who were silenced by the Nazis, he tells an unforgettable story.

CBSO+ 6.15pm: Music writer and Austrophile Gavin Plumley introduces Mahler’s Symphony No. 9.
