Mahler’s magnificent Symphony No. 2, also known as the “Resurrection Symphony”, was one of the composer’s most popular works, even during his lifetime, and continues to delight listeners today. It will be performed this July by the Megaron Chamber Choir, Slovenian Philharmonic Choir and the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Hansjörg Albrecht, who is a regular guest in Europe’s most important musical centres. The soloists will be the Bucharest-born soprano Valentina Farcas, who in addition to her opera engagements can also be heard on the concert stage, and the German mezzo-soprano Bettina Ranch, a regular guest of major opera houses in Berlin, Hamburg, Bologna, Amsterdam and elsewhere. The Megaron Chamber Choir, founded in 2003, is the brainchild of the teacher, composer and conductor Damijan Močnik, who is also the choir’s director. Megaron has developed into an excellent choir that consistently displays its fine qualities in international concerts and has taken top honours at a wide variety of choral competitions.
