Mozart's wind serenades range from genial entertainments to serious masterpieces, and this C minor work is one of the very best. Mahler's Sixth Symphony was composed between 1903 and 1905. This was outwardly the happiest period of the composer's life, but the symphony turned out to be an epic and disturbing work, about which Mahler later developed a superstitious fear. It begins with a frighteningly energetic arch, followed by a scherzo and a delicately scored andante. The huge final movement is a turbulent struggle interrupted by 'hammer blows of Fate' which lead the work to its tragic conclusion.

The Philharmonia Orchestra is Anvil Arts' Orchestra in Partnership.
