Mahler's Resurrection

Fri, Jun 2 - Sun, Jun 4, 2017
  • Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
  • Heinz Hall

“Why have you lived? Why have you suffered? Is it all some huge, awful joke? We have to answer these questions somehow if we are to go on living – indeed, even if we are only to go on dying!” Mahler raises these questions in the first movement of his Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection,” questions that are later answered in the finale. Manfred Honeck leads the orchestra, along with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and outstanding soloists Ying Fang and Gerhild Romberger, in a performance of this monumental symphony.

Endowment Funding for these performances is provided by the Howard & Nell E. Miller Foundation
