Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Edinburgh
Aug 2016 - Aug 2016


The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra return to Edinburgh International Festival in August 2016, with their Music Director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin. They are joined by highly-acclaimed British mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly for six sensuous Alma Mahler songs, in new orchestrations by British composers, Colin and David Matthews.

The orchestra also perform Mahler’s Symphony No. 10; described by Yannick himself as “a piece like no other in the history of music”, the work is both brutal and uplifting, a heart-wrenching farewell to the world, and to his beloved wife Alma.
