New Year; new Mahler

In the first concerts of 2011 we arrive at an important turning point for Mahler. Gone are the folk tunes that dominate the first four symphonies; in their place is a thrusting rhythm, a demonic drive and an argumentative edge - all heard through an enlarged, empowered orchestra.
