- Hans Abrahamsen Left, alone (CBSO co-commission, UK premiere), 20′
- Mahler Symphony No. 4, 55′
Gustav Mahler never wrote anything happier than his Fourth Symphony. Jangling sleighbells, Mozart-like melodies, and a child’s vision of heaven… if it almost sounds too sweet, trust Ilan Volkov to find the black comedy beneath the playful surface. First, though, we’ve a charming new version of Debussy’s Children’s Corner – and the first UK performance of a new piano concerto, specially written for tonight’s soloist by the Danish sonic magician Hans Abrahamsen.
CBSO+ 6.15pm Hans Abrahamsen will be interviewed before his UK premiere by CBSO Chief Executive Stephen Maddock.
