About Composer Roots: Mahler 1 with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

If you could hear silence, how would it sound? Maybe something like the massive stillness that opens Mahler’s First Symphony: the starting point for a young artist’s journey to the heart of absolute tragedy and glorious triumph. It’s one of those pieces that simply has to be experienced live, and as part of our ongoing Composer Roots project, we’ll uncover its origins in Jewish folk music with the klezmer band She’Koyokh.

Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room
Writer and broadcaster Gavin Plumley talks about Mahler’s complex musical roots, and how they influenced the First Symphony.

Bernstein
Overture: Candide

Bloch
Schelomo: Rhapsodie Hébraïque*

Mahler
Symphony No.1
