Part of the Aldeburgh Festival

Britten arr. Steuart - Bedford Death in Venice (Suite)
Mahler - Symphony No.5

Conductor
Sir Mark Elder

Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé present two remarkable works linked by a film.

Part of the inspiration for Thomas Mann’s 1912 novella Death in Venice came from hearing of Mahler’s death while Mann was staying in Venice, and the Mahler link is central to Visconti’s 1971 film, which uses the fifth symphony’s searing Adagietto throughout.

Britten’s opera adaptation of the novella evokes a similar mood but in a very different language. His shimmering score, heard here as an orchestral suite, conveys beauty and obsession through its minimal textures, rhythms and soundworld inspired by his encounter with gamelan music in Indonesia.
