The New York Philharmonic, with conductor Alan Gilbert, soprano Dorothea Röschmann, mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung and the New York Choral Artists (Joseph Flummerfelt, director), performs Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection” in a concert for New York for the tenth anniversary of 9/11, in remembrance and renewal. Taped at Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City on September 10.

“Mahler‘s Second Symphony, Resurrection, powerfully and profoundly explores the range of emotions provoked by the memories of 9/11,” said Gilbert. “This great masterpiece has a very special place in the history and psyche of the New York Philharmonic, but its message of renewal and rebirth is universal. We offer it as a tribute to those lost ten years ago.”
