June 2018 – Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Mahler and Morlock

Join Heather as she performs with:

Vancouver Symphony Orchestra

Mahler’s Resurrection: The Season Finale

THE MUSIC:

The final concert of Maestro Bramwell Tovey’s tenure as VSO Music Director features a world premiere commission by Composer-in-Residence Jocelyn Morlock, and Mahler’s epic, stunning work of compositional genius, the ‘Resurrection’ Symphony No. 2. This work is a dramatic, emotional journey that in some ways echoes Beethoven’s Ninth. Sweeping in size and scope, the monumental symphony struggles with profound questions of life, death, and the afterlife, with equally profound writing and orchestration.
