Schubert/Mahler String Quartet No. 14, Death and the Maiden
Górecki Symphony of Sorrowful Songs

Cathartic and hauntingly beautiful, Henryk Górecki’s Symphony of Sorrowful Songs is an astonishing meditation on loss and transcendence.

Performed by Paraorchestra’s pioneering ensemble of disabled and non-disabled musicians with acclaimed soprano Victoria Oruwari, Charles Hazlewood conducts this harmonic ‘spiritual minimalist’ composition.

Each of the three movements of Symphony of Sorrowful Songs features a Polish lament, taking audiences on an uplifting journey through grief and solace.

Górecki’s masterpiece is preceded by a performance of Schubert's Death and the Maiden: a melancholic, iridescent, and urgent piece realised for a full string orchestra by Mahler.
