The Titan: Mahler Symphony No 1

Arensky Chamber Orchestra
William Kunhardt, conductor

Gustav Mahler: Symphony No 1

'A symphony must be like the world. It must contain everything.' Gustav Mahler

It’s safe to say Mahler’s 1st Symphony lives up to both it’s title The Titan and that quote above: it opens with the 'awakening of nature at the very first dawn’, cuts to an eerie funeral procession, goes plunging into a hellish ‘inferno’ and finally rises to ultimate paradise - all in the space of just 60 minutes.

Members of the Arensky Chamber Orchestra will begin their first concert as resident orchestra at The Forge by bringing the symphony alive, unraveling its extraordinary musical tapestry with excerpts, short performances and thoughts about Mahler’s life and times. Then, after this journey into the mind of one of the greatest composers of all time, we invite you sit back and enjoy a rare and intimate performance of Mahler’s ’Titan', arranged for just 16 players by Klaus Simon and performed by the ACO’s star principal players.

The fourth in a series of hour-long, drive-time concerts at its home in Clerkenwell, LUMINOSO represents an opportunity to experience London’s liveliest chamber choir over a free glass of wine, and complete your evening with a delicious meal at one of Exmouth Market’s excellent eateries.
