Mahler Symphony No4
Thomas Søndergård Conductor
Mari Eriksmoen Soprano
Royal Scottish National Orchestra
A jingle of sleigh bells and a flurry of birdsong: Mahler’s Fourth Symphony begins like Mozart and ends with a child’s idea of heaven. But that’s only how the concert finishes. Thomas Søndergård kicks things off with the musical anarchy of Richard Strauss’ Till Eulenspiegel – classical music’s ultimate prankster. And there’s a world of emotion in between, this time from Mozart himself: a glorious showcase for the terrific Norwegian soprano Mari Eriksmoen.
Dedicated to The Lillie Bequest Fund in recognition of the RSNO Foundation’s generous support.
