Schubert Symphony No.4 ‘Tragic’
Mahler Symphony No.4
Kirill Karabits, Catherine Foster

Mahler is an expert in epic works and his Fourth Symphony is no different. If you like the big symphonic sound that reverberates through your entire body, this is the piece for you. It jumps from sheer joy to inexplicable sadness and shows Mahler to be both emotionally complex and daring within his composition. He ends his symphony with a development on the song The Heavenly Life and shows the contrast between heaven and earth. Although naming his Fourth Symphony ‘Tragic’, Schubert does not make this the theme of the work. It begins as a stormy and dramatic piece but ends triumphantly and heroically, making it one of his best-loved compositions.
