Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony Gets a Cinematic Screening in Ely Cathedral with Leonard Bernstein on the Eve of his 100th.

A truly unique and immersive experience which showcases Bernstein & Mahler at their best.

On the eve of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th Birthday, experience this legendary concert film of Gustav Mahler's Resurrection Symphony like never before with an immersive cinematic screening in remastered DTS surround sound, in the same place where it was recorded with a live audience 45 years ago.

This special screening at Ely Cathedral will be introduced in person by the concert’s director and Bernstein biographer Humphrey Burton, with broadcaster and film music concert producer Tommy Pearson. All in the place where it was originally filmed so beautifully!

A perfect way to commemorate the #BernsteinAt100 centenary celebrations: His greatest on-screen concert directed by Humphrey Burton in August of 1973. This performance of Gustav Mahler's Resurrection Symphony also features English mezzo-soprano Dame Janet Baker, English soprano Sheila Armstrong, alongside the Edinburgh Festival Chorus. All accompanied by the magnificent London Symphony Orchestra. Spellbinding brilliance during their collective artistic peaks.
