Mahler: Symphony No. 2 in C minor, “Resurrection”
Witness Mahler’s massive cosmic struggle from funeral march to ecstatic hymn of resurrection with the Grand Teton Festival Chorus as he attempts to answer the eternal questions “Why have you lived? Why have you suffered?” Mahler believed his mighty second symphony “came to us from some other world” and in its thrall we are “battered to the ground and then raised on angel’s wings to the highest heights.”
