Petrenko conducts Mahler 1

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

Another chance to hear Vasily Petrenko conducting the RLPO in Mahler’s First Symphony at the start of this year. 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.

Presented by Ian Skelly.
