MAHLERSymphony no. 10: Adagio and Purgatorio (first performance since 1924 of Willem Mengelberg’s performing version)
SHOSTAKOVICHSymphony no. 10Listen

 

Perhaps composers are superstitious people, and after Beethoven, few dared to write more than nine symphonies. Mahler proved the point – he died while writing his Tenth! Many scholars have tried to finish Mahler’s incomplete Tenth Symphony and today we hear the first performance in 95 years of two of the Symphony’s movements prepared by the legendary conductor Willem Mengelberg, who was a close friend of the composer. But to prove that it is possible to survive beyond a ninth symphony, this concert also presents the Tenth of Shostakovich’s 15 fully completed symphonies.
