Claudio Abbado conducts Mahler: Symphony No. 2, "Resurrection" Lucerne Festival Orchestra

About

At the end of this concert, as soon as Claudio Abbado lowered his baton, his interpretation of Mahler's Second Symphony became a legend.

An invisible thread runs between Claudio Abbado and the Second Symphony, "Resurrection" by Gustav Mahler. It is with this work that he made his debut with the London Symphony Orchestra and the Wiener Philharmoniker in Salzburg at the age of thirty-two and it is this symphony that he decides to conduct in August 2003 in Lucerne, with the new orchestra that he helped revive, the Lucerne Festival Orchestra.
