Gewandhaus Festival

Gewandhaus Festival: Mahler Festival 2023

11 - 29 May 2023

In May 2023, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig will be entirely dedicated to Gustav Mahler. A unique programme: All of his symphonies and other orchestral works should be performed by ten world-class orchestras in nineteen days in the city where Mahler became a symphonist. From 1886 to 1888 Mahler spent two pivotal years of his life in Leipzig, during which he set the course for his further career. Leipzig and the Gewandhausorchester guarantee an authentic atmosphere. Twelve years after the first Mahler Festival in 2011, Europe's top orchestras present once again their individual interpretations of Mahler's symphonic universe of sound. In addition to concerts by the Gewandhausochester under the direction of its Gewandhauskapellmeister Andris Nelsons, the programme includes the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

Advance sales for single tickets starts on 1 November 2021.

Mahler in Leipzig?

Why did Mahler's time in Leipzig play such a decisive role in his life? The time Gustav Mahler spent in Leipzig had a huge impact on his artistic work. He evolved from a hard-working conductor to an internationally renowned composer. This development is attributed to Leipzig. To mark the 110 anniversary of Gustav Mahler's death the Gewandhaus is organising the Mahler Festival.
