Where is Mahler heading? What is the question, and maybe even more important: is there an answer? The mystery was never solved. It is in my opinion the force that is always present in Mahler’s music.
Marlijn Helder’s orchestral version of Mahler’s Piano Quartet will receive its South Korean première tonight at the Seoul Arts Center. Also on the programme: Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto ‘To The Memory of An Angel’ with Renaud Capuçon on violin and Schostakowitsch’s Symphony No. 15. The concert also marks the first time that Mark Wigglesworth conducts the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra.
