Guildhall School musicians begin the new academic year with a performance of Mahler’s epic Resurrection Symphony.

Gustav Mahler’s hugely powerful second symphony provides the perfect showcase for the combined forces of the Guildhall Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, reunited for the first time since the emergence of the pandemic. Following four movements exploring questions of life, death and eternity, the composer described his vision for the work’s extraordinary choral finale as “A feeling of overwhelming love [which] fills us with blissful knowledge and illuminates our existence.”

For this concert the School is delighted to welcome back Takuo Yuasa – former Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra – as well as celebrated Guildhall alumni Giselle Allen and Kitty Whately, who feature as soloists.
