Fate knocks at the door, and LSO Principal Guest Conductor François-Xavier Roth and violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja seize the moment.
François-Xavier Roth conducts Ligeti & Beethoven
London Symphony Orchestra
Kirill Karabits conducts Mahler’s Fourth Symphony for the London Symphony Orchestra.
A unique composition, Mahler himself described the Fourth Symphony’s atmosphere as, “Imagine the uniform blue of the sky. Occasionally…it darkens and becomes phantasmagorical and terrifying: but it is not that it becomes overcast, for the sun continues to shine in its eternal blue, only to us it suddenly seems horrific, just as, on the most beautiful day in a sunlit forest, one can be seized with panic and terror.”
A captivating performance of music performed in London’s Southbank Centre.
(Conductor), Lucy Crowe (Soprano), (Director), (Composer)
