Andris Nelsons and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra – Mahler and Haydn
About this event
In his concerts with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra in August 2015, the young famed Latvian conductor Andris Nelsons conducted Mahler’s Fifth Symphony. This is a work whose emotional spectrum ranges from the opening movement’s funeral march and the love song of the famous Adagietto to the jubilant hymn of the finale.
The LFO and Nelsons took the festival motto “HUMOR” to heart and played Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 94, aptly titled “Surprise”, for its surprising moment where Haydn has a powerful chord crash out from the entire orchestra, played fortissimo and punctuated by a militaristic attack from the timpani.
This stream is available to watch until December 31, 2023.
