Our Fourth Subscription Series concert tells a real story. We hear three final works by composers closely associated with Vienna – Mahler, Schubert and Berg.
Gustav Mahler (1860–1911)
“adagio”
From Symphony No. 10
Composed 1910–1911

Alban Berg (1885–1935)
Violin Concerto
“in Memory of An Angel”*
Composed 1935

Wilma Smith Violin

Franz Schubert (1797–1828)
Symphony No. 9 In C Major, “the Great” D. 944
Composed 1828

Each demonstrating a century of visionary music from this great culture. The Adagio from Mahler’s un finished last symphony is a profound work that suggests areas that Mahler may have explored had he lived a normal life span. In a way, the Berg Violin Concerto – undoubtedly one of the most popular of the 20th century – takes up where the Mahler leaves o . We are pleased that we have Wilma Smith – a student of Louis Krasner, who commissioned the Berg – to play this deepest of all violin concertos.

It seemed fitting to end with Schubert’s great C Major Symphony. To use the word monumental is not too strong a descriptor for this symphony. It is a high water for early Romanticism and was to prove hugely influential to later composers.
