About this event

Mahler’s Symphonies, which have become a mainstay of the orchestral repertoire, were composed against a backdrop of increasing nationalism, social upheaval and technological change.

In an evening of performance and conversation we will explore how these influences shaped Mahler’s work and discover the parallels with our own tumultuous times that makes this music still so relevant.

This event will be filmed; there will be cameras in the auditorium.
