Part of the 2016/17 season

Bernard Haitink, a conductor who needs no introduction, conducts Mahler’s Symphony No 9, a work that needs no accompaniment.

From the serene atmosphere of the opening that clashes with tempestuous bursts of sound in the first movement, through to the hushed and poignant finale for strings the whole piece – and Mahler’s career as a composer – fades out gracefully into silence, a testament to the enduring legacy of this prophetic musical visionary. It takes a lot to match such a powerful work, so you can be sure to expect something definitive when the commanding presence of Bernard Haitink on the podium combines with London’s Symphony Orchestra for this powerful symphonic masterpiece.
