The Cleveland Orchestra is set to stream a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection” on Nov. 12, 2022.

The showcase, which will be conducted by Franz Welser-Möst will star Lauren Snouffer and Marie-Nicole Lemieux as the soloists.

This is the ensemble’s first performance of this Symphony since receiving the autograph manuscript earlier this year. Audiences will be provided with historical context and storytelling as part of the stream. There will also be insights from Welser-Möst and musicians on performing Mahler’s work.

“Discovery flourishes on Symphony with presentations by the best of the best orchestras and conductors from all around the world. The Cleveland Orchestra has a stellar reputation as one of the premier orchestras in the world, and we are thrilled to be working with them to co-produce this ‘Symphony Night Live’ performance,” said Rob Overman, Founder of Symphony Media in an official press statement. “Joining Symphony, The Cleveland Orchestra is now part of a global network of orchestras sharing their music with the world and democratizing access and discovery to new music.”

This represents the first of four streams throughout the year. Later this season, audiences will get a chance to check out John Adams’ “El Niño” followed by Mozart’s Requiem and the world premiere of a trumpet concerto by Wynton Marsalis.
