Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - Dudamel Conducts Mahler's Eighth?
Experience The Epic Symphony Of A Thousand
Renowned Venezuelan conductor and Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Gustavo Dudamel leads his ensemble, a host of talented singers, the Los Angeles Master Chorale, the Pacific Chorale, the Los Angeles Children's Chorus and the National Children's Chorus through a rousing performances of Mahler's stunningly epic Eighth Symphony. Dubbed the 'Symphony Of A Thousand', it's one of the largest-scale chorale works in the classical repertoire because of its required orchestral and vocal force.
After a period of writer's block, the colossal piece was feverishly composed in a single eight-week burst of inspriation and completed in the Summer of 1906. Inspired by and encompassing the 9th century Latin hymn 'Veni, Creator Spiritus' as well as Goethe's Faust, the work's uplifting message speaks of redemption, and the love between the composer and his wife Alma, set to a rousing symphonic spectacle like no other.
