Programme Note

Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra is joined by soprano, Hannah Sawle and conductor Robert Weaver, who makes his debut with the Orchestra as Guest Conductor. In a concert of delightful early twentieth century music, Robert will conduct Delius’ orchestral variations based on an English folk song before welcoming on stage Hannah Sawle for Richard Strauss’ Six Songs Op.68, with text by the German romantic poet Clemens Brentano. After the interval we perform Mahler’s fourth symphony, composed at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and now considered one of Mahler's most popular works. The symphony has a particular lightness of orchestral texture and is full of warmth and good humour. Soprano Hannah Sawle joins the Orchestra again in the last movement for the setting of a poem from “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” describing a child’s idea of paradise.
