A musical tribute to our liberators 
The musical choices for this special occasion were easily made. No other composer better voices the resurrection of hope than Gustav Mahler does in his forethoughtful Second Symphony, aptly known as Auferstehung, or Resurrection. For this moving piece, about life, death, and resurrection, Mahler pulled out all the stops: a colossal symphony orchestra with masses of strings, extra brass, an organ, chimes and bells, an enormous choir, two soloists, and even a little, extra orchestra, a Fernorchestrer, hiding off stage, sounding dimly in the distance. From a mellow marche funèbre rises an hour and a half’s worth of an emotional roller coaster. Mahler almost forces you to dwell on the deceased, but eventually calls out for resurrection, hope, and eternal life. “Mahler’s music has the strength to carry you away to another world”, in the words of chief conductor Dmitry Liss. An overwhelming symphony to commemorate 75 years of liberation.
