Norman Lebrecht, one of the most widely-read commentators on music, culture and politics, regular presenter on BBC Radio 3 and author of Why Mahler? discusses Mahler’s Symphony No.5.
From the heady world of fin-de-siècle Vienna, guest conductor Robert Trevino shares two mighty musical stories of anguish, redemption and (of course) love. Alban Berg dedicated his Violin Concerto ‘to the memory of an angel’ – for violinist Michael Barenboim (making his Liverpool debut), this is music that runs in the family. Mahler’s sweeping Fifth Symphony, meanwhile, begins with a funeral march before struggling through anger, courage and horn-whooping joy to an ending that practically raises the roof in triumph. Not to mention the rapturous Adagietto – maybe (just maybe) the sweetest love-letter ever written in sound.
