Strauss Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks
Mozart Arias from Le nozze di Figaro, Idomeneo and La finta giardiniera
Mahler Symphony No4
Thomas Søndergård, conductor
Mari Eriksmoen, soprano
A jingle of sleigh bells and a flurry of birdsong: Mahler's fourth symphony begins like Mozart and ends with a child's idea of heaven. But that's only how the concert finishes. Thomas Søndergård kicks things off with the musical anarchy of Richard Strauss' Till Eulenspiegel - classical music's ultimate prankster. And there's a world of emotion in between, this time from Mozart himself: a glorious showcase for the terrific Norwegian soprano Mari Eriksmoen.
