“What was created, must perish! What has perished, must rise again!” That death is not the end was Mahler’s most cherished vision. In his monumental Second Symphony, his attempts to grapple with existence are manifest on a grand scale. The choir and orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin under Sir Donald Runnicles will take their listeners along with them on this route per aspera ad astra – through hardship to the stars.
