Easter blog: Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony


For Easter: the last few minutes of the final movement of Gustav Mahler’s Second (“Resurrection”) Symphony.  I don’t know this conductor, or this orchestra, or these soloists, but they’re really pretty good.



I don’t listen to Mahler much anymore; honestly, he hurts my heart too much. But when I listened to this, it was like hearing it for the first time.



Even if you think you don’t like classical music, give this eight minutes of your time. It is amazing.



“You will rise again, my heart.”


I hope it’s true.  It would be lovely.



Happy Easter, y’all.
