AFFAIRS OF THE HEART
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

STRADDLING THE 19TH AND 20TH CENTURIES, MAHLER'S MUSIC EXPLORED THE AFFAIRS OF THE HEART WITH A PASSIONATE INTENSITY that takes the introspective and deeply felt to expansive and expressive ends.

Shot through with dark emotions, sweet-scented melodies and sylvan beauty, the sublime Rückert Lieder are exquisitely inspired by the immediacy of nature and the intimacy of love. Moving from bleakest terror to luminous, transcendent peace, the monumental Tenth Symphony was his mighty leave-taking of the world and surely one of the greatest love letters ever written.
