What if silence had a sound? That’s how Mahler begins his First Symphony; with a sound so still and deep that you feel it rather than hear it. And gradually – from bird calls and folksongs, daydreams and trumpet calls – he creates a wondrous new musical world. By turns playful and tragic, epic and intimate, it’s become one of the best-loved of 19th-century symphonies, just as Sibelius’s Violin Concerto has come to embody the soul of the Finnish nation. With Edward Gardner conducting the renowned London Philharmonic Orchestra, and the superb James Ehnes on violin, you’ll hear new poetry in even the most familiar music.
