Music in Durham

Mahler Symphony No.1 Titan

John Adams, Short ride in a fast machine
Gustav Mahler, Symphony No.1

Gustav Mahler’s symphonies form an epic exploration of nature and human experience, beginning with his first, nicknamed ‘Titan’ and played in this concert by Durham University Orchestral Society’s symphony orchestra. Its programmatic movements follow a journey through ‘Days of Youth’ leading to the inevitability of death and the promise of heaven.
In contrast to Mahler’s sweeping grandeur, John Adams’s post-minimalist work ‘Short Ride in a Fast Machine’ is a thrilling miniature.
