Webern: Six Pieces Op. 6 (chamber version)
Brahms: Four Songs for Women's Voices, Op. 17
Mahler: Symphony No. 10 (completed by Deryck Cooke)
Mahler never quite finished his Tenth Symphony, but when musicologist Deryck Cooke finally pieced together the sketches, he revealed a lost masterpiece - in which cries of love and cries of pain finally resolve in music of shattering honesty and piercing beauty. Nicholas Collon uncovers its secrets tonight, and sets it alongside miniatures from Brahms and Webern - each one a tiny, concentrated world of poetry and emotion.
