Mahler Symphony No 8
‘A vision of the whole universe ringing and resounding’: that’s how Gustav Mahler described his colossal Eighth Symphony. And the immense forces it requires have understandably earnt it the nickname ‘Symphony of a Thousand’.
Combining a stirring hymn to the creator with a rapturous vision of heaven from the legend of Faust, this is perhaps the grandest symphony of them all, at once euphoric and intensely spiritual.
British conductor Daniel Harding, Music Director of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, enthralled International Festival listeners with his Mahler Nine in 2016.A renowned Mahlerian, he returns with the composer’s most visionary creation.
Join an eminent roster of international solo singers, alongside the choral might of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, for one of music’s most transcendental experiences.
