Mahler’s great 2nd Symphony that was originally on the programme cannot, given the COVID situation, be safely performed. The Brussels Philharmonic and the Vlaams Radiokoor have chosen alternative programme, in which both ensembles can give of their best.
Mahler sets the tone, Mendelssohn confirms: Fate Now Conquers!
For when fate strikes hard, we find strength in faith. Faith that takes a different form for each person:in a God, in healing, in a hopeful future, in the meaning of life, in each other.
