OMM10: Mahler 2
18 August 2018, 7:30pm
ESPLANADE CONCERT HALL
GUSTAV MAHLER Symphony No. 2 "Resurrection"
Chan Tze Law conductor
Siobhan Stagg soprano
Caitlin Hulcup mezzo-soprano
Maior Chorus (Toh Ban Sheng, chorus master)
OMM revisits Gustav Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony after its critically acclaimed 2010 performance. The epic and invigorating Resurrection took six years to perfect and changed the musical landscape forever. Combining enormous orchestral forces with a massive chorus and two vocal soloists, the Symphony takes the listener from early solemnity to an apocalyptic conclusion, depicting earthly terror and heavenly transcendence.
“one of the most thrilling performances of Mahler’s Second Symphony I have ever heard”
-Robert Markow, Fanfare Magazine, 2011 (on OMM's performance of Mahler's 2nd Symphony in 2010)
