Schubert and Mahler. Two Fourths
5. February, Saturday - 18:00

Schubert and Mahler. Two Fourths

Organised by: Koncertzāle Cēsis

Gunta GELGOTE, soprano

Latvian National symphony orchestra

Conductor Andris POGA

Two Austrians and their Fourth Symphonies. One is said to be the first true Romantic, while the other represents the decline of the era. On the one hand, Franz Schubert and his Fourth or Tragic Symphony, written in 1816, but tragically premiered only twenty years after the composer's death. On the other hand, Mahler and his Symphony no. 4, composed at the turn of the 20th century, although, at the time, it did not receive immense appreciation. More than 100 and 200 years on, the music has conquered audiences and, on 5 February, the two composers and their Fourths will meet on the same stage under the masterful baton of Andris Poga.
