Andris Nelsons conducts Mahler’s Fifth Symphony

When people think of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony, they think of the Adagietto – at least ever since the movement was used as the soundtrack to Luchino Visconti’s Death in Venice, making a significant contribution to the morbid charm of the Thomas Mann adaptation. In addition to Mahler’s music, Andris Nelsons also offers an exciting discovery in this concert: HK Gruber’s Trumpet Concerto Aerial which shifts between wistful jazz and ironic dance music. The soloist is Håkan Hardenberger.
