Actually, eleven-year old Andris Nelsons was only looking for music for meditation when he came across Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony, where he was immediately enthusiastic about its mystical atmosphere of nature. Now the Latvian conductor – today one of the leading Mahler interpreters of our time – is presenting the composer’s first symphonic work with the Berliner Philharmoniker. In addition, we will hear Sofia Gubaidulina’s meditative violin concerto Offertorium, inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach. The soloist is Baiba Skride, who for many years has been one of Andris Nelsons’s artistic partners.
