On demand: Mahler's Symphony no. 4

Bergen Philharmonic OrchestraRecorded at Grieg Hall (Grieghallen), Bergen, Norway

Mahler's first four symphonies are often referred to as the Wunderhorn symphonies because many of their themes originate in earlier songs by Mahler on texts from Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Boy's Magic Horn), a collection of German folk poems and songs. The Symphony no.4 in G Major, composed in 1892, is built around a single song, "Das himmlische Leben" ("The Heavenly Life"). 

Watch it performed by soprano Sally Matthews with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra led by Spanish conductor Juanjo Mena.
