English and Spanish translation projected above the stage.
When Gustav Mahler debuted his Second Symphony, it was immediately clear that the popularity of the symphony nicknamed “Resurrection” would last well beyond his lifetime. In fact, Classical Music Magazine dubbed Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 one of the greatest symphonies of all time. The Phoenix Symphony concludes its season with the musical journey that begins at the funeral bier of a beloved friend and ends with redemption and resurrection in a mighty choral finale. Katherine Whyte, a compellingly dramatic soprano, and Megan Esther Grey, a potently precise contralto, join The Phoenix Symphony Chorus in a work that is both profound and extraordinary.
