Classical music

Conductor Giordano Bellincampi

Soprano Lisa Larsson

Mozart Don Giovanni: Overture

Berg Seven Early Songs

Mahler Symphony No.4


The overture to Don Giovanni begins with the harmonies of hell, which at the end of the opera drags its unrepentant hero to Hades. After this dramatic opening, Mozart’s lively music sets the scene for the comic elements in the story.

Swedish soprano Lisa Larsson sings Berg’s lush, decadent, ultra-Romantic songs.

Mahler, that most sophisticated and world-weary composer, created a world of childlike innocence and wonder in his exceptionally beautiful Fourth Symphony. Barnyard noises, a bizarre mistuned violin, Mahler’s most restful music, a child’s view of heaven; this symphony is a profound, deeply moving emotional experience.
