Petrenko's Mahler cycle begins
Vasily Petrenko conducts the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in music by Webern, arrangements of Schubert's songs with baritone Benjamin Appl and Mahler's epic Symphony No.1.
Vasily Petrenko starts his year-long voyage through Gustav Mahler’s symphonies at the beginning, with his first symphony. The piece opens with the dawn of time itself and ends by practically blowing the roof off! Meanwhile, Mahler’s disciple Anton Webern evokes the sweetest of dreams in the blissful Im Sommerwind. In between, baritone Benjamin Appl joins the orchestra once again to explore the tender, deeply romantic songs of Franz Schubert.
