Lead by Daniel Harding, and with almost five hundred musicians and singers needed for this monumental work, it's little wonder that Mahler's Symphony No. 8 has earned the apt 'symphony of a thousand' nickname. The Groot Omroepkoor (The Big Broadcasting Choir) and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester will be assisted by various other choirs and soloists making for an orchestral event like no other. Mahler himself described his Eighth Symphony as his most substantial work ever. The concert will take place on 15 and 16 May 2020 in the Royal Concertgebouw Amsterdam.
