Gustav Mahler's Resurrection Symphony Finale Performed by Orchestre National de France & Chœur de Radio France, Conducted by Chung Myung-whun
- It will be the first time for the Korean audience to enjoy live performance of all of Mahler’s great symphonic works. The Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra has prepared the lofty series to mark the 150th anniversary of the composer‘s birth and 100th anniversary of his death. The genius composer, who lived from 1860 to 1911, is hailed for acting as a bridge between the 19th century Austro-German tradition and the modernism of the early 20th century. Mahler became one of the most frequently performed and recorded composers after 1945 and remains so up to this day.
The Seoul Phil’s 2010 season includes the Symphonies No. 2, 10, 1 and 3. The 2011 performance schedule includes the Symphonies No. 4, 5, 6, 7, 9 and 8 in this order.
