Donald Runnicles, Conductor Emeritus of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, presents works by Mozart and Mahler through which symphonic music and song are woven. In the first half, Mozart's enduring vocal works "Exsultate jubilate" and "Voi avete un cor fedele" sandwich his Symphony In D Major, music from the opera 'La Finta Giardiniere'.
Mozart was a hero to Mahler -it is reported that he uttered Mozart's name on his deathbed- and after the interval the orchestra perform Mahler's Symphony No. 4, incorporating a childlike vision of heaven, sung, as with the Mozart, by soprano Carolyn Sampson. "There is just no music on earth that can compare to ours" are words from Des Knaben Wunderhorn which Mahler sets in the final movement of his intimate and emotionally far-reaching orchestral statement.
