Mahler $200: Symphony no. 9 (26 & 27 Apr) *
Mahler's last completed symphony, the Ninth, is a breath-taking piece depicting the composer's farewell to life.
The slow unconventional first movement echoes the gentle yet irregular Mahler's Heartbeat . The Symphony follows the ups and downs of existence, and dissolves into the last movement which signifies Mahler's goodbye to the world.
Rounding up the orchestra's 45th anniversary special project, Mahler $200, all seats for the Ninth are available at a uniform price of HK$200. Don't miss the opportunity to go on a journey with the HK Phil and Maestro Jaap van Zweden, revealing Mahler's earnest search for love, hope and the meaning of life in his most deeply personal Symphony.
Mahler $200: Symphony no. 9 will be held on 26 & 27 Apr (Fri & Sat), 8PM in the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall. Tickets priced: HK$200 are available at URBTIX. For enquiries, please call +852 2721 2332 or visit hkphil.org.
