Mahler: Symphonies Nos 4 and 5 - Part 1

Episode 1 of 2

Valery Gergiev conducts the World Orchestra for Peace and Camilla Tilling (soprano) in Mahler's Symphony No 4 in G.

BBC PROMS 2010

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Andrew McGregor

Valery Gergiev makes the first of his two appearances this season conducting the World Orchestra for Peace, an ensemble of first-rate players from around the world, in two symphonies by Mahler whose 150th anniversary it is. The often child-like innocence of the Fourth is followed by the funereal, stormy and ultimately life-affirming Fifth.
