Chief Conductor Christoph Eschenbach explores Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2, which is about the last things: The meaning and meaninglessness of life, death - and then? From 1888 to 1894, Mahler composed his answer, which is consoling at the end, and noted as an aid to understanding the last movement: "... it is not punishment and not reward! An almighty feeling of love pervades us with blessed knowing and being."

On this evening, the musicians of the Konzerthausorchester Berlin and the wonderful voices of the soloists Marisol Montalvo and Mihoko Fujimura will give you an inkling of this feeling.
