Fabio Luisi leads the NHK Symphony Orchestra

Born in Italy, Fabio Luisi is currently chief conductor on two continents. In Texas, he is the successor to Jaap van Zweden at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. In Tokyo, he leads the NHK Symphony Orchestra, which today performs Mahler's Third Symphony, one of Mahler's signature orchestral works with a major role for voice. The NHK Symphony Orchestra is joined by the women of the National Radio Choir and the National Children's Choir.

Mahler's Third Symphony

Initially, Mahler gave his Third Symphony a programme: a summer morning dream. In the six movements, he featured animals, flowers and angels. He later removed all these titles, but the Third remains a declaration of love for nature and the universe, including Bavarian folk music, sleigh bells, and children stepping into the roles of angels.

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.
