The Proms last Saturday

 

Did anyone see Mahler's Resurrection Symphony from The Proms last Saturday?  This was performed by the Venezuelan Youth Orchestra (I forget its name) and the National Youth Choir. The last movement was truly memorable, consisting of the 0rchestra, the 200-member choir and a soprano and mezzo-soprano. As the title implies, the theme is 'life after death' and the triumphalism of the last movement when all join in implies that there is.

 

This is not the only piece of music that reduces me to tears. On seeing tears streaming down my face, my dog, a Labrador, jumped on my knee, wondering what was the matter. My wife was unmoved, knowing, after 45 years, how music such as this affects me.
