Mahler-Festival 2023 in Leipzig
From 11 to 29 May 2023 the Gewandhausorchester will host a Mahler Festival in Leipzig, the city that was home to the composer for two decisive years of his life: a unique opportunity to hear the complete symphonies and other orchestral works interpreted by 10 world class orchestras, in the city in which Mahler became a true symphonic composer. The symphonic canon of Gustav Mahler forms the foundation of the Mahler Festival 2023, since it was in Leipzig that Mahler became the musician we know him as today: a composer of enthralling symphonies. Leipzig and the Gewandhausorchester offer a particularly authentic setting for the Festival: Mahler spent two years in the city, conducting the Gewandhausorchester almost daily.
