Leicester 2012/13 Season
Richard Strauss was so in awe of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony – especially the passage towards the end of the radiant slow movement when the gates of Heaven open in a resplendent E major – that in homage he sent him a huge parcel containing his complete published works. Mahler broke with convention by ending this most heart-warming of all his symphonies with a song of child-like innocence in praise of heavenly life. That same tantalising simplicity informs the magical slow movement of Mozart’s K467 Piano Concerto. The concert also includes a work by Nimrod Borenstein (2009) in three sections: ‘Light’; ‘Peace’ and ‘Adam and Eve’.
