Programme Note

Join our brilliant orchestral musicians on two exhilarating journeys in which day-to-day reality and the life of the imagination are enigmatically entwined. Austrian composer Gustav Mahler’s symphony begins with sleigh bells and ends with the music of the angels. We travel from an outdoor world of sunlight and bird calls, folk fiddles and hunting horns to the eternal realm as seen through the innocent eyes of a child. This music is profound yet simple, charming and nostalgic – all expressed through a stream of melody strongly recalling Schubert, whose work Mahler knew well. In a more straightforward fashion, the 20-something Mendelssohn records his discovery of the Italian countryside, the piercing Mediterranean light and “... a warmth, mildness and happiness, a sense of joyous well-being spread over everything that is quite indescribable”. But he did, and how!
