Cambridge Philharmonic

Mozart and Mahler

Saturday 25th May 2013

7:30 pm

Martin Roscoe is one of this country's finest musicians. In this, his 60th birthday season, he joins the Cambridge Philharmonic directly after appearances with the Halle, BBC Philharmonic and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras. He plays Mozart's turbulent D minor concerto - a work composed in such a hurry that the parts were still being copied on the day of the permiere! It was an immediate success and it wasn't long before the young Beehoven had it in his repertoire.

If, as Mahler famously said, a symphony "should encomass the world", then of all his works, it is the sunny and uplifting Fourth Symphony that describes a world Mozart and Beehoven might well have recognised. Bells jingle, birds sing and in he last movement we hear a child's magical vision of heaven, sung in this performance by soprano Prudence Sanders who made such an impression in last season's Candide.
