Valery Gergiev conducts Verdi and Mahler Pacific Music Festival 2018


Valery Gergiev conducts the young talents of the 2018 PFM Orchestra in an exciting performance at Tokyo’s Suntory Hall. They open with music from Verdi’s Sicilian Vespers: set at Easter time in 1282, the opera tells the harrowing tale of the slaughter of the Palermo-based French garrison by Sicilian rebels at the start of the Easter Monday evening Vespers service. Next comes a powerful interpretation of one of Mahler’s most enigmatic and fascinating works, inspired by Rembrandt’s 1642 painting The Night Watch: his “Song of the Night”, the Symphony No. 7 in E Minor.
