Why See Houston Symphony - Mahler's Resurrection Symphony?
A wolrd of its own
A supremely rewarding emotional workout, a live performance of Mahler's monumental Resurrection Symphony is one every concertgoer must experience at least once in a lifetime. So, sit back, relax and join the Houston Symphony and guest vocalists as they take you on an electrifying journey of pure drama leading to a heart-shattering climax!
Created between 1888 and 1884, the piece is an introspective yet passionate work that stemmed from the death of his friend, the conductor Hans Von Bulow. After hearing an extract from Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock's Die Auferstehung, where the dictum calls out "Rise again, yes, you shall rise again / My dust" he was compelled to begin his Resurrection, writing to a friend, "It struck me like lightning, this thing, and everything was revealed to me clear and plain."
