Britten's only Piano Concerto boils with anguish, torment and poignancy in a bravura display of youthful passions while the sunniest of Mahler's symphonies teems over with smiling good humour and effervescent joy before culminating in a glorious, resounding finale that revels in a child's irresistibly blissful vision of Heaven.
