Mahler Symphony No. 4 (2015)

Mahler

Lisa Larsson

Antonello Manacorda

Not only in his fi rst symphony, but also in his third and fourth, Gustav Mahler repeatedly struggled with the various movements: whether to include them, or how to put them in the right place in the work. Symphony No. 3, completed in 1896, initially had seven movements, two of them to text from Des Knaben Wunderhorn. These Lieder, Es sungen drei Engel and “Das himmlische Leben” showed clear thematic similarities and were indeed meant as a pair in the symphony. But Mahler decided to remove the latter Lied, which he had meant to be the seventh movement. The symphony was already quite long, and perhaps two Lieder from Des Knaben Wunderhorn was a bit too much of a good thing. Ultimately this Lied, which Mahler actually wrote in 1892, found a place in his Symphony No. 4, which he completed in 1901.

Het Gelders Orkest

 

Tradition and innovation – two key features of the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra. In the tension created between these two concepts, we pass on our passion for live classical music to young and old alike. Eighty-five musicians come together in a major, authoritative symphony orchestra at the highest level. The orchestra’s ambition is to bring enjoyment of live symphonic music to audiences in Gelderland and beyond. This is why we organise 100 symphonic concerts each year, alongside family concerts, educational concerts and special participation projects for amateur musicians. We also record several (live) CDs every year. Through these activities, the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra reaches an audience of more than 400,000 people. The orchestra’s innovative activities set it apart and have won it a large number of accolades. The Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra recently introduced its “LAB” series, a breeding ground for musical initiatives. The youthful and successful Antonello Manacorda has been Chief Conductor of the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra since 2011.
