Hans Abrahamsen: Let me tell you
Gustav Mahler: Symphony no. 4 in G major

In Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, the composer takes a new creative turn, using the orchestra’s rich timbres to convey a luminous, nostalgic, blissful vision of heaven, seen through the eyes of a child. It is a symphony with an intimate sense of spirituality that was not understood in its day, which reveals the boundless imagination of a composer who left his hallmark on the history of symphonies.  Let me tell you, the second commission given to Hans Abrahamsen by the Berlin Philharmonic, embraces a  song cycle conspicuous for its polished precision and moments of great lyricism, it is inspired by the eponymous novel by Paul Griffiths. It is  a work with a theatrical mood that has received high praise throughout the whole of Europe since its premiere.
