MAHLER Symphony No 1 (‘Titan’)

Daniel Harding pairs a symphonic favourite (Mahler’s First Symphony, which journeys towards a blazingly triumphant conclusion via a twisted funeral march) with a brand new work by British composer Huw Watkins.

The concert will be dedicated to the memory of Claudio Abbado, Principal Conductor of the LSO between 1979 and 1987, who sadly passed away on Monday 20 January. Not only did Daniel Harding have a particularly close relationship with the elder conductor, Abbado’s performances of Mahler symphonies were some of his most extraordinary achievements during his time with the LSO, and this concert celebrates the legacy of this truly charismatic figure.
