Haydn : Cello Concerto No.2 (c.26 mins)
Mahler: Symphony No.4 (c.57 mins)
Alexey Stadler : cello
Miah Persson : soprano
Michael Sanderling : conductor
‘With the coming of spring, I am calm again,’ wrote Gustav Mahler, and with its flurries of birdsong, and playful melodies, there’s something fresh and sprightly about his Fourth Symphony that recalls nature returning to full bloom. But in the ‘child’s vision of heaven’ with which it ends, the Fourth has depths as poignant and profound as anything Mahler ever wrote. Michael Sanderling wowed City Halls with Shostakovich’s Fifth at the start of 2020 and returns with Swedish soprano Miah Persson, and the Russian cellist Alexey Stadler who’s our soloist in Haydn’s sublime D major concerto. An evening so full of light you’ll believe - for once – that spring has truly arrived in Glasgow.
