Mahler's Fifth
Available on Prime Video, Marquee TV
Edward Gardner conducts Mahler’s Symphony No.5 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. A lone trumpet sounds in the darkness and Gustav Mahler begins his great struggle from tragedy to triumph – by way of midnight storms, joyous horn calls, and the most tender love letter ever written without words: the rapturous Adagietto. ''The symphony should be like the world'', said Mahler; and with Edward Gardner conducting, Mahler’s Fifth becomes the emotional experience of a lifetime. This concert was filmed on 26 April 2023 at Royal Festival Hall Program: Mahler Symphony No. 5
