Cancellation of the 2021 Mahler Festival
At the beginning of 2021 we remain in the midst of a pandemic, the unpredictable course of which continues to force numerous restrictions and rearrangements upon the programme. Sadly, as a result of these circumstances, the 2021 Mahler Festival has been cancelled.
There are currently discussions with all the artists involved, with a view to stage the Festival in 2023. We hope to inform you of all details including the new schedule and booking conditions before the end of the year.
Mahler Festival 2021
From 13 to 24 May 2021 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 only 12 days, in the city in which Mahler became a true symphonic composer.
The symphonic canon of Gustav Mahler forms the foundation of the Mahler Festival 2021 (13-24 May 2021), 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.
