  • Mahler Sinfonia n. 2 "Resurrezione"

in memoriam Claudio Abbado

Mahler's symphonies take listeners on journey to unexpected sonorities, to a world that envelopes them as they are transported to another dimension. On this occasion we will be enjoying his Symphony no. 2 - the "Resurrection" symphony - conducted by Daniel Harding. When still quite young, Harding was launched in his career by Claudio Abbado; now, two years after the great man's death, Accademia is dedicating this concert to the memory of Claudio Abbado, a magnetic interpreter of Mahler.
Mahler's symphonies take listeners on journey to unexpected sonorities, to a world that envelopes them as they are transported to another dimension. Man's relationship with the transience of his nature, the ephemeral substance of life, and at the same time the daily struggle for survival that nobody can escape: these are the main theme in an inner discourse Mahler developed in the entire symphonic cycle - a reflection to which he devoted his entire life. Symphony no. 2 had a very long gestation period, engaging the composer's efforts from 1888 to 1894; the idea that led him to the work's conclusion arose from a suggestion that came to him during the funeral of famed conductor Hans von Bülow. On that occasion, verses by the German poet Klopstock were sung: a hymn to the Resurrection that Mahler used for his Symphony's finale.
Two years after the conductor's death, Accademia di Santa Cecilia dedicates this concert to the memory of Claudio Abbado - a magnetic interpreter of Mahler - who made his debut with this symphony at 32 years of age on the podium of the London Symphony Orchestra. And it was with this symphony that, in 2003, he chose to celebrate the birth of the Lucerne Orchestra and its renowned Festival, founded by Arturo Toscanini in 1938.
Daniel Harding will be on the podium for the Santa Cecilia Orchestra and Chorus; when still quite young, he was launched in his career by Abbado himself, for whom he served as an assistant.
