Time To Face The Music

This Sunday the CBSO and Sir Simon Rattle will perform the last concert in the Birmingham Mahler Cycle, Das Lied von der Erde. This special concert marks the culmination of what, for many, has been an emotional journey through Mahler’s symphonic output.

We’d like to say a big thank you to all those who completed My Mahler cards after the performances or contributed to this site. The following comments left by audience members sum up the breadth and depth of response to the many varied interpretations of Mahler presented during this cycle.

The beginning of the 8th – one of my top 10 musical moments!’

‘Multi-layered, leaving new experiences to be discovered with every new performance’

‘Mahler is so spiritual and understands the humans being and portrays all aspects of life in such a wonderful way’

‘Mahler has been part of my life for 30 years. To hear and watch the CBSO and Andris perform the Mahler 9th was just epic. Can’t wait for more sublime Mahler’

‘I’m delighted…to have discovered Uri Caine’s small scale, fresh, imaginative and cool reading of this eternally fresh composer’s oeuvre. Mahler still grooves for me – forty years on’

‘Absolutely into another world!!’
