MAHLERSymphony no. 4


Vasily Petrenko continues with a German programme, featuring English soprano Elizabeth Watts in her Hong Kong debut. Hailed as “one of the most beautiful voices Britain has produced in a generation” (International Record Review), Watts will sing five ravishing lieder by Richard Strauss, including such perennial favourites as Morgen! and Cäcilie. Petrenko concludes with Mahler’s sheerly delightful Fourth Symphony, with Watts joining in the final movement for a presentation of a child’s vision of heaven.

The concert runs approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes with an intermission.
