The Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra will perform all ten Mahler symphonies from the Helsinki Music Centre and stream them live on Yle Areena, where they can also be accessed later.

The cycle opens on August 24 with Mahler’s 8th symphony conducted by Hannu Lintu with soloists Camilla Nylund, Anu Komsi, Lilli Paasikivi, Tuomas Katajala, Stephen Gadd and more.

Lintu will also conduct M4, M6, M2 and M9 during the season. The other symphonies will be led by Manfred Honeck, David Zinman, Sakari Oramo, Jukka-Pekka Saraste and Ryan Wigglesworth.

    Thanks for the link, Norman. There is a wealth of performances to enjoy, not only the upcoming Mahlers.

    This is exciting — I have heard excellent Mahler at some point from virtually all of them. Thanks for the warning.

    Hats off to Finnaland, for investing in culture and education. While another Mahler cycle is not exactly my cup of tea, I am consistently impressed at the quantity and quality of classical music output that comes our of this small country. I am sure William Osborne will have some impressive numbers to back this up.

    I’ve saved the Yle Areena website on my Bookmarks. I’ll particularly want to hear that 8th.

    I posted the video link for the 8th symphony onto the Gustav Mahler Board website. It was quite good. I’m very impressed with Lintu.

    Glad to know. I’ve been starving of Mahler for almost a day.
