Horns that seem to call to us from distant peaks. Strings that surge like mountain streams. Vistas that open up and expand before us. Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony is suffused with the spirit of nature, as it moves between moments of tender lyricism and thundering majesty. Associate Conductor Alpesh Chauhan guides us through its light and shade, linking it here with works by two composers on the brink of casting off such heady Romanticism: Webern’s Passacaglia and an excerpt from his teacher Schoenberg’s mammoth Gurre-Lieder. Karen Cargill sings the lush Song of the Wood Dove, a part she has sung across the world.
