The Oxford University Philharmonia performs Mahler's 2nd Symphony ('Resurrection') and the Bartók Viola Concerto. Mahler's monumental exploration of death and resurrection is one of his most accomplished works, praised as "a heart-shattering work of genius" and "simply one of the greatest works of art ever created". Bartók's haunting Viola concerto was the composer's swansong, left unfinished upon his death. We are delighted to be performing it with the sensational soloist Rachel Maxey.
