Budapest Festival Orchestra and Iván Fischer

'Mahler's beauty always hurts', conductor Iván Fischer said recently. Tonight, he conducts his Budapest Festival Orchestra in Mahler's Symphony No. 2, full of passion, lyricism and brightly shining melodies. Mahler is in good hands with Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra. Fischer knows like no other how to get Mahler's music flowing; there is no composer he understands better. As early as 2006, Fischer and the orchestra recorded Mahler's Symphony No. 2. 'Impressive', wrote Gramophone.

Mahler's Symphony No. 2

He who calls us gives us eternal life - sings the choir towards the end of Mahler's Symphony No. 2. In this emotionally charged work, Mahler expresses his ideas about life after death. Bliss and melancholy are both given space. Pure, insinuatingly and moving.

Mahler Festival

From 9 to 18 May 2025, Het Concertgebouw is organizing a major Mahler Festival for the third time. After the Mahler Festivities in 1920 and 1995, all of Mahler's symphonies will be heard again in the Main Hall. Among others, they will be performed by the Budapest Festival Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Concertgebouw Orchestra, which was once conducted by Mahler himself. A selection of top soloists and choirs, led by conductors such as Iván Fischer and Jaap van Zweden, devote themselves to these monumental works. More information about the Mahler Festival can be found here.
