The Macphail Theatre is the venue for performance by the Mahler Players
Mahler Symphony No. 10
The Mahler Players return with the final concert in the Mahler in Miniature series. Mahler’s Tenth, unfinished at the time of his death, has long fascinated audiences and performers. We perform the Adagio first movement, the only part of the symphony almost entirely completed by Mahler. Together with Mahler’s final statement is an orchestral version of the last opera in Wagner’s Ring Cycle, Götterdämerung (“The Twilight of the Gods”). At around 45 minutes in length this is a presentation of the orchestral highlights of the opera, lovingly crafted into an unbroken symphonic line by arranger Iain Farrington.
The Mahler Players will also be giving the world premiere of Escapades, a newly commissioned work by Peter Longworth.
