Mahler's Fifth Symphony

Music, Classical and opera

Valery Gergiev takes the baton in front of the Mariinsky Orchestra for Mahler’s Fifth Symphony, at the Auditori. Generally considered to mark the beginning of the composer’s middle period, the Fifth Symphony shows “man in the full light of day,” as Mahler himself claimed. Valery Gergiev has devoted much of his activity to the study, interpretation and recording of Mahler’s symphonies, both with the London Symphony Orchestra and, as on this occasion, with the Symphony Orchestra of the Mariinsky.
