In Flanders fields, Mahler’s funeral march meets a contemporary requiem

No non-committal aural pleasure, but music with a mission. That was what Mahler had in mind when he started his Fifth Symphony. The same can be said of Annelies Van Parys. Using the words of theatre maker Dea Loher, Van Parys gives voice to the horror of war. From suffering to love, and back again: these extremes also meet in Mahler's Fifth. Its chilling funeral march reaches out to its famous Adagietto, a sublime love letter to Mahler's new bride Alma.
