Robin Ticciati starts this concert with a work by György Ligeti. Nietzsche's line "Denn alle Lust will Ewigkeit" will be sung by a solo mezzo-soprano in the fourth movement of Mahler's symphony. Ligeti interprets eternity in his a cappella composition 'Lux aeterna' for mixed choir. It is among the pieces by the Hungarian composer that Stanley Kubrick used in his film '2001: A Space Odyssey'.
