It was the musical equivalent of raising the Titanic.
When musicologist Deryck Cooke rescued Mahler’s only-just-incomplete Tenth Symphony, he salvaged one of the landmarks of 20th-century music: a huge, heartfelt meditation on the meaning of life itself. If you don’t know the Tenth Symphony, you don’t know Mahler.
About Mahler's Tenth Symphony
Unfortunately, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla is unwell and has had to withdraw from conducting this week's performance of Mahler's Tenth Symphony in Birmingham. We are hugely grateful to Robert Treviño for stepping in to conduct these performances at such short notice. The programme will remain unchanged.
