Mahler 10: Letters and Readings

Sir Andrew Davis conductor

Tama Matheson presenter

Mahler Personal letters, readings
Mahler/Cooke Symphony No. 10

Mahler had more challenges than most of us: grief for a dead daughter, a forced resignation from a treasured conducting post at the Vienna Opera, anti-Semitic attacks, the diagnosis of a potentially fatal heart condition, and the final straw, his wife Alma’s infidelity. As a result, his Tenth Symphony, completed by Deryck Cooke, is one of the most personal of the cycle, full of raw emotion, passion and heartbreak.

Actor and director, Tama Matheson joins conductor Sir Andrew Davis for the first half of the concert to share the words of Gustav Mahler, contextualising Mahler’s epic final symphony, which Sir Andrew will conduct during the second half.

Step inside the mind and music of a master composer under the guidance of Sir Andrew Davis, Tama Matheson and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
