“Why have you lived? Why have you suffered? Is it all some huge, awful joke? We have to answer these questions somehow if we are to go on living – indeed, even if we are only to go on dying!” Mahler raises these questions in the first movement of his Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection,” questions that are later answered in the finale. Manfred Honeck leads the orchestra, along with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and outstanding soloists Christina Landshamer and Gerhild Romberger, in a performance of this monumental symphony.
