This coming Saturday, I’ll be playing 4th oboe/2nd cor anglais with the APO in Mahler’s wonderful 2nd symphony, ‘Resurrection’. More details and information about ticket purchasing on APO’s website here. This is my first Mahler outing and it’s been fabulous so far! To be honest, Mahler is much more fun than I thought it was going to be, but I’m not sure where my dour preconceptions came from.
We’ll be in the Great Hall at the London Road campus of the University of Reading, kick-off at 7.30pm. There’ll be a 15-minute interval after the 1st movement, because this is a biggie.
