Symphony No. 4 in G major

Retrospection, stylisation, pastiche – eternal themes in classical music. Mozart’s concert aria (in a genre that would soon pass into oblivion) was written for a star of the Vienna opera house, Nancy Storace. Here, the pain of separation is combined with a remembrance of closeness that echoes through the piano part. Schubert wanted to prove with his overture (for a bottle of good wine) that he knew how to write in the style of Rossini, who was much admired in his entourage. Gustav Mahler assumed Schubert’s fondness for ‘heavenly lengths’ that opened up unfathomable space. In his Fourth Symphony, a buoyant Mozartean rationalism, charming melodies and the pleasure of communing with music are intertwined with Mahlerian theology, just as the recollection of innocence is juxtaposed with traditional representations of Death playing a fiddle and heavenly delights in the closing song.

[Adam Suprynowicz, translated by John Comber]

Duration of the concert (including break): approx. 100 minutes
