Rolf Martinsson Ich denke Dein... (UK Premiere)

— Interval —

Mahler Symphony No. 4

Mahler’s expressive Fourth Symphony centres around the poem Das himmlische Leben (The Heavenly Life), a child’s vision of heaven, and the music is at times joyful, at times uneasy, ending in a beautiful and serene soprano solo describing the music of the angels. The first half of the concert features the UK premiere of Rolf Martinsson’s Ich denke Dein… a song cycle for soprano and orchestra, exploring the theme of love through five German poems. The soprano voice soars over the lush orchestration, bringing to life the passion of the verses.
