SundayArts is Now NYC-ARTS
Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection”
Posted: April 6th, 2009

Jason Starr, producer/director of the superb film on Mahler’s Symphony No.3, What the Universe Tells Me, has now turned his attention to Mahler’s great Symphony No.2 “Resurrection”. For this production, he has enlisted a “super-orchestra” comprised of musicians from the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony, Detroit Symphony and the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. His outstanding soloists are soprano Twyla Robinson and Mezzo-soprano Susanne Mentzner joining the New York Choral Artists and Riverside Chorale, all under the exciting direction of Maestro Neeme Järvi.

    Question: on the credits, I noted, in passing a member of the orchestra bu the name of HICKS–NJ Symphony? Is is possible to obtain his first name? My interest is genealogical.

  • Brad York

    Performed in the chorus of this production. Any DVD available?
    Thank you.

  • Eric Siegeltuch

    Which cathedral was this recorded in? I didn’t see any mention of it.

  • Susan Meyer

    Mr. Hicks first name is Randall and he is the timpanist of the NJ Symphony Orchestra.
    I believe the church is the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, but I’m not sure of this.

  • Eric Siegeltuch

    Thank you, Susan. I just drove by the cathedral tonight and wondered if that was it. I think you are right – either that or Riverside Church a few blocks away.

  • Lynn Tesher

    The church was the Riverside Church, land the concert was one of those moments in life that takes your breath away, it was so beautiful. Is the DVD availabe yet? Many thanks to all those who made this truly devine experience possible.
