Andris Nelsons conductor
Håkan Hardenberger trumpet
Mahler Symphony No. 5
Tonight we have a rare opportunity to see Swedish trumpet virtuoso Håkan Hardenberger (the work’s dedicatee) perform HK Gruber’s Aerial, a thrilling concerto roller-coaster in two main parts, which requires the soloist to play the cowhorn as well as trumpet and piccolo trumpet, to perform with slides removed and to sing and play simultaneously!
