About Budapest Festival Orchestra: All-Mahler Program

In this all-Mahler program, Iván Fischer and his boldly original Budapest Festival Orchestra are joined by German contralto Gerhild Romberger for the heart-rending Kindertotenlieder, poignant lamentations on the death of a child. The evening concludes with the arresting Symphony No. 5, an enduring monument to the composer’s belief that “a symphony must be like the world; it must embrace everything.”

Mahler takes his work completely seriously, as does Fischer, which makes everything tonight thoroughly compelling.

A perfect beauty of a performance, natural sound matching natural evolution and every solo perfectly intoned.
