Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) give the world premiere of Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Remembering, followed by Mahler’s Symphony No. 6, live from London’s Barbican. Sir Simon Rattle conducts Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Remembering. The work was written in memory of Evan Scofield, the son of guitarist John Scofield, with whom Turnage worked closely on earlier compositions. The program also features Mahler’s legendary Symphony No. 6 (1904). The work is disturbing in its nihilistic despair yet attains a true and monumental grandeur. The orchestral forces used are formidable: eight horns, six trumpets, four trombones, two harps and celesta and strings to match. Yet while it was written at one of the happiest times in Mahler’s life, march-rhythms haunt the symphony. And in the final movement, the extensive percussion section is augmented by a huge hammer for three blows of fate, leading to perhaps the bleakest ending in all music.
