Mahler – Symphony No. 4 with conductor Gustavo Gimeno and Orchestra Philharmonique Luxembourg. With the fourth movement folksong 'Das himmlische Leben' performed by Swedish soprano Miah Persson. Also included on the release is Mahler’s Piano Quartet in A Minor, 'Nicht zu Schnell'.
Mahler’s Fourth Symphony is a stunning combination of Modernist classical combined with the reminiscence of Romanticism. It is a joyous, impressive and moving display of orchestral grandeur, paired with Mahler’s only surviving chamber music composition, arranged by Colin Matthew’s, the fascinating Piano Quartet in A Minor.
