Mahler’s First

The Berliner Philharmoniker in Singapore

The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the world’s leading orchestras, and their 2010 tour concluded with their first visit to Singapore.

They present Mahler’s unique and breathtaking First Symphony – once dubbed “Titan” in homage to Romantic novelist Jean Paul – as well as Rachmaninov’s wonderful Symphonic Dances.


  • Symphony No. 1 in D major ‘Titan’


  • Symphonic Dances, Op. 45

Performed by the Berlin Philharmonic, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle

In this concert, the Berliner Philharmoniker beautifully capture Mahler’s love of nature, and also Rachmaninov’s nostalgic memories of Russia.
