Two Haydn symphonies demonstrate his mastery at developing great music from small themes. In 1783, Mozart wrote music for a pantomime based on commedia dell’arte figures, for friends and family to perform. Most of the music has vanished, but Alfred Schnittke has fashioned a witty tribute out of what remains. Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer set the fragility of the human heart against a universe teeming with joyous creation.

Our fourth subscription concert is once again given over to the music of Haydn and Mahler, with a modern work by Schnittke adding a quirky take on Haydn and Mozart. We open the programme with The Queen Symphony – so named because Marie Antoinette particularly enjoyed the work at its premiere. The closing symphony is the most richly scored of the Paris Symphonies and provides ample evidence of this master’s ability to create extraordinary developments out of seemingly simple building blocks.

Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer is his first song cycle and shares an intimate relationship with his first symphony, composed three years later. This early work of genius signposts many of Mahler’s artistic concerns, including nature motifs, marches, autobiography and of course the human voice.
