Mahler's Fourth Symphony with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the BBC National Chorus of Wales

 20 April 2012 at 7.30 pm 

Mahler's Fourth Symphony with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the BBC National Chorus of Wales

St David's Hall
Cardiff
United Kingdom

Conductor Thierry Fischer
Soprano Lisa Milne
BBC National Chorus of Wales

Mahler's Fourth Symphony is one of his most
relaxed works - classical, song-like and
culminates
in a representation of a child's view of
heaven. An early commentator remarked,
"Mahler's
Symphony is a work for children and those who will become children." Simon Holt's The Yellow
Wallpaper is a dramatic piece for soprano and orchestra (with sopranos placed within the
orchestra!). It sets to music the story of obsession caused by living in a room with yellow
wallpaper by the early feminist writer Charlotte Perkins Gillman.
Please note - Schumann's Requiem for Mignon will no longer be performed in this concert.
