Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor
Rebecca Nelsen soprano
Berg Lulu Suite
Mahler Symphony No. 9
Mahler’s magnificent Ninth Symphony depicts the composer’s epic battle between his passionate love for life and the dread of death - a topic Mahler's mind was obsessively drawn to in the writing of the work, ending the music with a haunting decay into silence. Our Principal Conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts this masterpiece. But first, Soprano Rebecca Nelsen performs Berg's Lulu Suite.
