Mahler’s Fifth Symphony begins in the darkest depths of the human soul. 70 minutes later it’s raising the roof, as the whole orchestra seems to shout for joy. It’s an incredible journey through a world of delirious waltzes, terrifying storms, and the most tender of all musical love letters: the haunting Adagietto. Edward Gardner shows the way tonight – and Haydn’s playful concerto will surely whet the appetite.
