Lucerne Festival Orchestra, Andris Nelsons – Mahler 5
There is probably no other orchestra that is so intensely involved with Gustav Mahler and has established such an outstanding “Mahler sound”: The long-standing engagement of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA with his symphonies is unprecedented. This tradition was carried on this summer: In his concerts with the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA, 36-year-old famed Latvian conductor Andris Nelsons conducted Mahler’s Fifth Symphony, 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.
