Festival Details - "Philharmonia Orchestra - Mahler: Symphony No.4"...

Part of Classical Season

The Philharmonia Orchestra performs Mahler’s celestial Fourth Symphony and songs by Richard Strauss celebrating life and love.

`There is no music on the earth which can ever compare with ours.’

So sings the soprano at the close of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, describing a heaven where angels bake the bread and Saint Peter fishes from a limitless pond.

Mahler builds his symphony towards this celestial setting of a poem from Des Knaben Wunderhorn, musically working backwards from experience to innocence, complexity to simplicity and also journeying from earthly life to heaven.

Also hear soprano Chen Reiss perform Strauss’ lieder of life and love. `And to the shore, the wide shore with blue waves, we will descend quietly and slowly; we will look mutely into each other's eyes and the silence of happiness will settle upon us’ (from `Morgen!’).
