01Radio 3 Live In Concert20121114

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.
