Known as The Resurrection Symphony, Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2 was one of his most popular and successful works during his lifetime.

The title has often led to the assumption that Mahler composed this symphony on a religious impulse. But rather than being an expression of Christian faith, the symphony reflects Mahler's enduring optimism for mankind and his lifelong fascination with the beauty he believed lay within the afterlife.

The CSO is delighted to welcome to New Zealand and to our Christchurch stage the Melbourne Youth Orchestra. The orchestras will be joined by critically acclaimed soprano Amanda Atlas, Freemasons Dame Malvina Major Emerging Artist mezzo soprano Bianca Andrew and the Christchurch City Choir.

This monumental symphony features orchestral forces on an epic scale with over 100 musicians on the stage. Taking its listeners on a journey of emotion and feeling that concludes with one of the most exultant moments in music, Mahler's second symphony is definitely not to be missed.
