MDR Sinfonieorchester
Mahler: Symphony No. 1 D major and works by Johann Sebastian Bach

After Bach's music had been re-discovered by Mendelssohn, composers from the turn of the Century up to the time of the Bauhaus also became intensely interested in Bach’s works. This concert presents two compositions which tell us much about the ideal sound of this time, since Mahler’s and Schoenberg’s arrangements of Bach diverge significantly from our current idea of the ‘authentic’ Bach sound. These Bach transcriptions are combined with Mahler’s popular First Symphony, written in 1888 in Leipzig when Mahler was Kapellmeister at the Theatre, not far away from the church music Bach traditions of the Thomas Church. The concert is conducted by the American conductor and composer, Brad Lubman, for whom his student experience of Mahler’s First Symphony became the springboard for his subsequent career and who cites Bach as the greatest inspiration for his compositions today.
