  • Gustav Mahler
    Symphony No. 5

Gustav Mahler’s Fifth Symphony begins with one of the most famous trumpet soli in music literature. It is followed by a 70-minute drama of the worlds: the music rises up, falls down, finally literally exploding in heroic passages. Soft string sounds dominate in the famous Adagietto. But that is just the quiet before the storm of the Finale. This ambiguous quality can also be found in Olga Neuwirth’s music. Her humorous and demonic worlds of sound will be interpreted for the first time by the Berliner Philharmoniker in the European premiere of Keyframes for a Hippogriff.
