The BBC Philharmonic, conducted by Antonello Manacorda, perform warm and richly varied music from twentieth century Vienna. Webern's subtle and engaging orchestration of Bach's 6-part Ricercare from The Musical Offering prepares the palate for Berg's group of Seven Early Songs, dedicated to his wife and sung by soprano Katrien Baerts. Mahler's Fourth Symphony, culminating in a child's vision of heaven closes the programme.
