Mahler’s vast Symphony No.2 lasts almost 90 minutes, and requires a full orchestra with extra brass, bells, a choir, two female soloists and an off-stage orchestra. It deals with death, redemption and resurrection, concluding with a wonderful choral setting of Klopstock’s Resurrection Ode. The choir begins peacefully in a very subdued mood but gradually the tempo develops more energy and leads to a magnificent climax in which choir and orchestra project Mahler’s vision of resurrection with great rapture and glory.
