The Lark Ascending

Schubert Symphony No.2 (29')
Mahler Rückert Lieder (17')
- INTERVAL - (20')
Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending (15')
Sibelius Symphony No.7 (22')

Mihhail Gerts conductor
Roderick Williams baritone
Amarins Wierdsma violin    

“I live alone in my heaven / In my love, in my song”. Mahler’s Rückert Lieder sing of
tenderness, of loneliness, and of the beauty of nature. And when Roderick Williams performs
them, they go straight to your heart. A moment like this needs to be experienced in the right
company: so guest conductor Mihhail Gerts frames Mahler with the wit and warmth of
the young Schubert, the elemental grandeur of Sibelius, and the rapturous serenity of The
Lark Ascending
. Detox for the soul.
