Mahler’s Fourth Symphony

Described as “a work for children and those who will become children”, Mahler’s song-like Fourth Symphony culminates in a representation of a child’s view of Heaven for soprano, sung here by Ailish Tynan. Its light, graceful spirit is also reflected in Haydn’s earthly good humour, and Mozart’s first great concert aria, with its meltingly beautiful central section.
