Tragedy to triumph and the power of love
Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART Symphony No.38 Prague
Gustav MAHLER Symphony No.5
Karina Canellakis conductor
Following her sensational WASO debut in 2018, Karina Canellakis returns with Mahler’s magnificent Fifth.
From the opening lone trumpet quietly intoning a chilling, doom-laden fanfare through to the vast exultant finale for full orchestra, Mahler’s Fifth Symphony embraces a world of human emotions from despair, longing, triumph, anguish and tenderness. At its heart is the famous Adagietto, Mahler’s outpouring of love to his new wife, Alma, expressed in music of overwhelming beauty.
“Canellakis’ high-wire act was a dare... Something could have derailed it at any moment. Nothing did. It was great.”
