Classic Intro - 6.15pm, Music Room
University of Liverpool’s Dr Lee Tsang talks about Dutch conductor Willem Mengelberg, famous for his performances of Mahler with the Concertgebouw Orchestra, and Mahler’sSymphony No.4.Not all Mahler symphonies are massive. His Fourth Symphony opens with a jingling of sleigh bells, a flurry of birdsong and a melody straight out of Mozart. But it’s not all sweetness and light, and Vasily Petrenko is sure to find both laughter and tears on the way to Mahler’s final vision of heaven, with Susanne Bernhard returning to Liverpool after the success of the Britten War Requiem last season. It’s an enchanting way to end a concert that opens with Beethoven at his most operatic, and his most poetic – as the mesmerising Boris Giltburg plays the enigmatic Fourth Piano Concerto.

Vasily Petrenko will provide an introduction from stage before this concert, to help you get even more from the experience.
