Introduction/abstract

European Union Youth Orchestra · Christina Landshamer · Iván Fischer
LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN · GUSTAV MAHLER

Two Fourths: while Beethoven’s op. 60 is mostly only performed as part a cycle, Mahler’s Fourth Symphony is very much present in concert halls. Classically structured and compact, it makes a clear contrast with his powerful Third and the expansive Fifth. Beethoven’s magnificent Fourth is similar: embedded between the «Eroica» and the «Symphony of Fate», it completely foregoes the programmatic impetus of its sister symphonies and, in the best classical tradition, is sufficient unto itself.
