In the second of their two-concert series, the LSO and Sir Simon Rattle perform Mahler’s gargantuan Ninth Symphony – the composer’s struggle with the meaning of life.

London Symphony Orchestra
Sir Simon Rattle | Conductor

Mahler | Symphony No 9

Rattle has long been revered for the searing intensity and insight of his Mahler performances. For the second in their two-concert International Festival residency, Rattle directs the London Symphony Orchestra in the composer’s final completed symphony. Mahler’s Ninth struggles with the deepest of questions, staring unflinchingly at death while grappling tirelessly with the meaning of life. It takes the listener on a profound journey into the vagaries and ironies of existence, and contains some of the composer’s most forward-looking, visionary music – sometimes bitter, sometimes beautiful; ultimately transcendent.
