Mozart Piano Concerto No.27 in B flat K595
Mahler Symphony No.4
Be enchanted by Mozart’s transcendental concerto, a realm of haunting melody, emotion and harmonic adventure that signalled new musical horizons.
Dream large in Mahler’s revelatory Fourth Symphony. Spiritual, profound yet brushed with dark humour, it celebrates the composer’s love of nature, his eternal quest for meaning and gift for dazzling orchestral colour. The last movement of the symphony features the human voice, in this case a soprano, in the song Das Himmlische Leben (The Heavenly Life) set to poetry from Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Youth’s Magic Horn). Musical motifs from this movement form the base for the entire work.
