Live from Symphony Hall, Birmingham.

Presented by Martin Handley.

Jac van Steen conducts the CBSO in Schoenberg's Five Pieces and Mahler's Seventh Symphony.

Schoenberg: Five Pieces for Orchestra (1909 original version)

City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

Jac van Steen, conductor

Mahler called it a "song of the night", and indeed, the Seventh is a Mahler symphony like no other. It begins in a boat on an Alpine lake and ends with trumpets aloft in blazing, roof-raising celebration. Along the way there are distant bugles, moonlit serenades and spine-chilling horror. The concert opens with a revolutionary masterpiece by one of Mahler's most devoted admirers, which received its premiere a hundred years ago. With an oversize orchestra and a kaleidoscope of colours and textures, Schoenberg looks decisively towards a brave new musical world - and sheds fresh light on Mahler's own futuristic vision.

Live from Symphony Hall, Birmingham

Presented by Tom McKinney

The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Andris Nelsons, plays Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations - with Daniel Müller-Schott as cello soloist - and the Manfred Symphony.

Tchaikovsky: Marche Slave

Tchaikovsky: Rococo Variations

8.05: Interval

Tchaikovsky: Manfred Symphony

Daniel Müller-Schott: cello

City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

Andris Nelsons: conductor

Tormented by forbidden desires, Byron's Manfred takes to the mountains to battle his demons. Tchaikovsky knew exactly how he felt, and poured everything into fifty minutes of the rawest, most personal and most passionate music he ever wrote. It's certainly a powerful contrast to the stirring Marche Slave and the jewel-like Rococo Variations, here played by Daniel Müller-Schott.
