Five stars - the highest possible - the Volkskrant stuck on Lahav Shani's Mahler 2 with his Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. Last season, the orchestra was also unforgettable in Muziekgebouw Eindhoven. '...then you notice how effective Shani's dynamics are, and how sublimely the giant RPhO reacts to him,' wrote the reviewer, duly impressed by this experience. On the cusp of this Bruckner year 2024 (Bruckner was born 200 years ago), we celebrate this 'composer of monumental buildings' together with Shani and his Rotterdammers.

There will be a free introduction at 7:30 PM, co-sponsored by the Friends of Muziekgebouw Eindhoven.

Shani got to know Bruckner's unique sound world by playing double bass in an orchestra. Now it is one of the composers he admires most. 'You often hear about Bruckner's magnificent structures, but I am mostly touched by the atmosphere,' the maestro said. He sees his most significant, and perhaps most difficult task with Bruckner, as building up and conveying the story. With this grand Eighth, that is the story of a journey from darkness to light. A story that grabs you by the ear: an overwhelming sensation to experience live.
