Nelsons Conducts Mahler: Symphony No.2 "Resurrection" (Salzburg, 2018)
From the storm-swept tragedy of its opening to its transcendent closing vision of a world reborn, Mahler's massive "Resurrection" Symphony is one of those touchstone pieces for any conductor and orchestra: a colossal, death-to-life musical panorama that – in a truly great performance – should leave no listener unmoved. This concert at the 2018 Salzburg Festival brought together Andris Nelsons and the Vienna Philharmonic, along with soloists Ekaterina Gubanova and Lucy Crowe and the superb choir of Bavarian Radio, for an impassioned, intensely dramatic journey through the Second Symphony – praised by critics at the time for its powerful contrasts and vivid sense of drama.
