In the course of Haydn’s overture to his oratorio “The Creation”, the formlessness and dark void of the primordial state are pierced by ascending motifs that bring life and light into the chaos. A visionary work.
Schubert’s “Unfinished” was just as modern and ahead of its time. The symphony has an eerie, mystical beginning and surprises listeners with its wild highlights. Mysterious dreamscapes are also called up in Gustav Mahler’s fourth symphony – a labyrinth filled with mirth and horror. In the final movement, Mahler has set “Das himmlische Leben” from “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” to music. Just the thing for the luminous, velvet voice of Christina Landshamer.
