Søndergård Conducts Mahler Six
Piano Concerto No23 K488
Thomas Søndergård CONDUCTOR
Ingrid Fliter PIANO
Royal Scottish National Orchestra
Art imitates life: it isn’t meant to happen the other way around. Mahler’s mighty Sixth Symphony imagines a hero destroyed by three devastating blows of fate. But after he’d completed this immense, tragic masterpiece, that’s exactly what happened to Mahler himself. It’s a musical experience that leaves no listener unmoved, so Thomas Søndergård begins with something altogether sunnier: the lovely Piano Concerto No23 by Mahler’s hero Mozart, played by RSNO favourite Ingrid Fliter.
