Why See National Symphony Orchestra - Mahler's Tenth Symphony?
Donald Runnicles Leads Mahler's Unfinished Symphony
The National Symphony Orchestra welcomes the return of Scottish composer OBE Donald Runnicles for a program centred on Mahler's Symphony No. 10 alone. Hailed as a foremost interpreter of Romantic symphonic and operatic works, the world renowned conductor is the perfect choice to lead this unfinished symphony, bringing the orchestra's multi-season exploration of the iconic Austrian composer's works to a close.
Mahler died before his final work could be completed and as such, reflects a tumultuous time in the composer's life. Troubled by failing health, the death of his daughter and his wife's infidelities, Mahler's crises manifested as a dissonant and deeply moving piece that swings through a wild arc of unrelenting emotion. Yet through the discord a gentle serenity appears in the final bars of this poignant revelation.
