Bernard Haitink conducts Mahler’s Second Symphony

Gustav Mahler’s Second Symphony revolves around the great metaphysical questions. At the very beginning a funeral service is evoked before the following movements celebrate the beauty of life and nature. Faith and the resurrection of man characterise the conclusion. Bernard Haitink is the ideal conductor to bring out the sonority and the transcendental aspects of the work. In 1993, he performed it with the Berliner Philharmoniker.
