Concert

Tragische

Hugh Wolff

Presentation

Tremendous emotions, an frighteningly prophetic announcement of personal tragedy and an immense scoring for, amongst others, twenty woodwinds, nineteen brass and even an enormous hammer: Gustav Mahler’s Sixth Symphony is superhuman in every respect. So the La Monnaie Orchestra and the Belgian National Orchestra are joining forces to perform this great beast of the symphonic canon. Hugh Wolff, the BNO’s US principal conductor, will lead this double-strength musical elite force through humanity’s struggle against obstinate matter and its resigned acceptance of solitude. Mahler’s tragedy, seeped in philosophical self-reflection shares the programme with Mozart’s final Piano Concerto, with the outstanding pianist Paul Lewis at the keyboard.
