Mahler Symphony No. 1, "The Titan"
Gustav Mahler famously pronounced that, “A symphony must be like the world, it must embrace everything.” He relentlessly delivered on this vision throughout his nine symphonies, drawing listeners in to whole new sound-worlds. As engaging and evocative Mahler’s symphonies are for audiences listening from afar, experiencing one from inside the orchestra is a transforming experience. You will experience the world as it emerges from nothingness, through nature, celebration, sorrow and blinding brilliance. Sitting inside the orchestra, you will ride the emotional roller coaster, feeling every twist and turn, resulting in an unbelievably brilliant climax!
