Anton Webern Six Pieces for Large Orchestra (chamber version)
Alban Berg Chamber Concerto
Gustav Mahler (arr. Erwin Stein) Symphony No. 4

Anthony Marwood violin
Alexander Melnikov piano
Kate Royal soprano
Nicholas Collon conductor

Aurora sizes up three Viennese masterpieces, each performed in dazzling miniature. Webern’s fiercely expressive Six Pieces for Large Orchestra, here heard in its chamber arrangement, is teamed with Berg’s Chamber Concerto, a tightly-constructed homage to Arnold Schoenberg for piano and violin with 13 wind instruments. Mahler’s most delicate and radiant symphony, with its celebrated depiction of a child’s view of heaven, completes this ravishing programme.

There is also a pre-concert panel discussion at 6pm chaired by Tom Service – Second Viennese School: Schoenberg and his contemporaries
