These are unprecedented times for our society. The drastic measures taken to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic have all but put a stop to public life. We hope that they will bring the progress of the coronavirus to a halt. However, these measures have an enormous impact on The Concertgebouw will therefore now remain closed until 1st June, leaving no option but to cancel the Mahler Festival that we were due to take part in.

In the coming weeks the Concertgebouw will investigate the possibility of moving the festival to a later date.

MAHLER Symphony No. 9
(80 mins, no interval)

John Warner conductor

‘It is the expression of tremendous love for this Earth, the longing to live upon it in peace, to enjoy nature to its greatest depths…’ (Alban Berg on Mahler’s Ninth Symphony)

Experience Mahler's masterpiece like never before, in a chamber arrangement that is as intimate as it is visceral, performed under breathtaking images of Alpine glaciers. 

The natural world that Mahler adored, and that his Ninth Symphony conjures up so beautifully, is under greater threat now than ever before. The Alps have already undergone dramatic changes since Mahler's lifetime, none more apparent than the retreat of glaciers. The science shows that without dramatic and immediate action to de-carbonise, Alpine glaciers will shrink by 95% by the end of the century. Join us for a unique performance of Mahler's masterpiece, and learn how we can avert the crisis we all face.

Mahler 9: can we save Europe's glaciers?
