BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Mahler

Thomas Sondergard conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in the Adagio from Mahler's unfinished Symphony No 10, and his Ruckert Lieder with mezzo-soprano Catriona Morison.

Two of Mahler's most emotionally-charged works from a recent concert with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. New Generation Artist Catriona Morison sings the 5 lieder which Mahler set to the Romantic poetry of Friedrich Rückert, before the heart-wrenching Adagio from Mahler's 10th Symphony, the only section left complete before the composer's death. Plus, there's music by Price, Ben Haim, Parry, Elgar and Schmitt.

Presented by Tom McKinney.
