In honor of our long-standing Chief Conductor Mariss Jansons the BRSO and the BR-Choir performed Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, the “Resurrection Symphony”, on Wednesday, 15 January 2020 under the direction of Zubin Mehta. As part of the concert, the BRSO posthumously awarded the Karl Amadeus Hartmann Medal to Mariss Jansons.
This new CD contains one of the last recordings with Mariss Jansons: “Pini di Roma” by Ottorino Respighi from a concert in May 2019. In November 2017, the “Carmen Suite”, masterfully arranged by Rodion Schtschedrin based on the famous melodies from George Bizet’s opera, was performed in concert.
