Gustav Mahler

Symphony No. 8

symphonic orchestra concert

October 1., Friday 20:00

Eiffel Art Studios – Locomotive Hall

Concert performance in Latin and German with Hungarian and English surtitles

Thanks both to the spectacular development of our Orchestra and Chorus and to the size of Eiffel Art Studios’ Locomotive Hall 327, since 2020 we have been able to perform Mahler’s enormous creation at the beginning of each season as a sort of preparation. Each year, it is directed by a different conductor. The work was last performed in Hungary 13 years before our grand undertaking: Hungary was first able to perform it in 1983 (!) and it has been played on two occasions since by the ad hoc companies of various artistic institutions. There is hardly a more appropriate piece for launching our Opera Total orchestra series than this powerful symphony, which will involve almost every single one of our musicians, who in themselves could make up a number of orchestras.
