Life Imitates Art

Thomas Sondergard conducts the RSNO in Mahler 6, the tragic masterpiece which pre-echos the composer's own fate, and Ingrid Fliter plays Mozart's sunny piano concerto No 23.

Thomas Sondergard conducts the RSNO in Mahler's 6th Symphony, the tragic masterpiece which is said to pre-echo the composer's own fate. In contrast, Mozart's ever-sunny Piano Concerto No 23 performed by the award winning Argentinian pianist Ingrid Fliter provides the balance to the overwhelming power of Mahler's sonic landscape. Presented by Kate Molleson and produced by Lindsay Pell
