Edward Gardner conducts Mahler’s Symphony No.5 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Edward Gardner conducts Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture and Brahms' Symphony No.1 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
After seeing Fingal's Cave in the inner Hebrides of Scotland, Felix Mendelssohn was instantly inspired to write his brilliant concert overture. It's said that upon hearing the overture Brahms remarked, "I would gladly give all I have written, to have composed something like the Hebrides Overture." It's the perfect pairing for Brahms' epic Symphony No.1. He spent over 14 years writing this emotional symphony, and the depth of his dedication shines through.
Under the skillful baton of Conductor Edward Gardner, both pieces come alive with dramatic intensity. This program is a harmonious blend of romantic imagination and masterful composition.
