Gustav Mahler: Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen
Dmitri Chostakovitch: Symphonie N° 4

Duration: 100' + entracte

«Shostakovich in perspective». Yes, but whose? Gustav Mahler’s of course! The 1885 cycle Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen portrays the composer’s unrequited love for Johanna Richter. Unlike Dmitri Shostakovich, who was known to be very familiar with the aesthetic of his Austrian colleague, Richter never heard the work. Shostakovich’s Fourth Symphony, which was directly influenced by Mahler, features an extensive first movement, lasting almost the duration of a complete symphony of the classical era. Under Jukka-Pekka Saraste’s lead, the Luxembourg Philharmonic is sure to enchant the audience with this piece. Before that, they will join forces with the baritone George Nigl to bring you Mahler’s earlier song cycle. Ahead of the concert, the film Dmitri Shostakovich: Dem kühlen Morgen entgegen will be screened at 17:45 in the Salle de Musique de Chambre.
