MAHLER              Symphony No.9 (c.85 mins)

Sir Donald Runnicles  conductor

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Each performance of Mahler’s Ninth is something of an occasion, and that goes double when the BBC SSO’s distinguished Conductor Emeritus Sir Donald Runnicles returns to the podium. Gustav Mahler was convinced he’d never get past his Ninth Symphony – and for some listeners, the very first notes seem to echo the word “farewell”. But this is a symphony of life, not death, and through distant fanfares, haunted waltzes and deep dark wells of terror and sorrow, it tells a tale of bittersweet memories, enduring love, and a creative spirit that acknowledges no limits. Unmissable.
