Classical University Symphony Orchestra

Sat 10th March 2012 (7.30pm)


Tristan and Isolde, ill-fated lovers, are the protagonists of Wagner’s immense opera; the work performed here gives the essence of their passion and tragedy. Opening with the distinctive sounds of flutes and sleighbells, Mahler’s fourth symphony is based around the song ‘Das himmlische Leben’, a child’s view of heaven, which is hinted at in the first three movements before being sung by soprano soloist in the fourth movement.
