“’What is life and what is death? Will we live on eternally? Is it all an empty dream or do our life and death have a meaning?’ And we must answer this question, if we are to go on living.” —from Mahler’s own program notes, for a 1901 performance of his Symphony No. 2, (Resurrection).
Mahler’s expansive, dramatic, and sublime work showcases some of the composer’s most lyrical symphonic writing. The five-movement symphony reflects his lifelong view of the beauty of afterlife and resurrection.
