Daniele Gatti conductor
Markus Werba baritone
Daniele Gatti makes a very welcome return to the Royal Festival Hall, conducting two exultant gems inspired by the wonders of the natural world. If the Pastoral Symphony is Beethoven’s personal musical response to Nature, his most cherished and dependable companion in life, Mahler’s delight in rusticity and musical folklore is captured in a stunning collection of songs that was to have a far-reaching impact on the remainder of his output.
