Mahler Fifth Symphony

LSO Conductor Laureate Michael Tilson Thomas brings a lifetime’s insight and experience to Gustav Mahler’s mighty Fifth Symphony: a story of life, death and love beyond words.

Alone in the darkness, a trumpet sounds, and Gustav Mahler begins his symphonic struggle from tragedy to triumph. Enter a world of midnight storms, joyous horn-calls, and possibly the most tender love-letter ever written without words: the heart-rending Adagietto.

Michael Tilson Thomas has a relationship with the LSO that spans five decades – and which grows more rewarding every time he returns. Mahler’s symphonies are part of the fibre of his musical being, and in his hands, the five movements and 70 minutes of the Fifth Symphony carry the emotional power of a lifetime.
