5. Mahler and Silentium
Extreme and silence
A. PAIR · Silentium
G. MAHLER · Symphony No. 5, C sharp minor
"I've discovered that it's enough to play a single note beautifully. This tone, the silence or the silence reassure me. " - Arvo Pärt
The Fifth is considered today as one of Gustav Mahler's most popular and most performed symphonies. "His music gets under my skin. She is so intense and full of extremes. I think so was his life. Before that we play Silentium by Arvo Pärt, one of the most important living composers of New Music. Through his work, the connection between aesthetics, ethics and spirituality can be experienced, "says Elisabeth Fuchs.
