Mahler’s Sixth Symphony portrays an artist crushed by three “hammer blows”. Soon afterwards, three devastating blows reduced Mahler’s own life to ruins. Coincidence? What’s certain is that everything about this huge, emotionally-charged masterpiece is larger-than-life – so the energy and commitment of the CBSO Youth Orchestra will fit it like a glove. If you’ve heard them play Mahler before, you won’t want to miss this.
There will be no interval.
