Antonello Manacorda conducts the Symphony n. 4 in G major by Gustav Mahler. The work was composed between 1899 and 1900, although it incorporates a song originally written in 1892. The song “Das Himmlische Leben“, taken from “Des Knaben Wunderhorn“, presents a child’s vision of Heaven. It is sung by soprano Carmela Remigio in the work’s fourth and final movement. Although typically described as being in the key of G major, the symphony employs a progressive tonal scheme.
Antonello Manacorda is Principal Conductor of Kammerakademie Potsdam since 2010 and Principal Conductor of Het Gelders Orkest in Arnhem, Netherlands since 2011. He also has many regular guest conducting relationships which include the Wiener Symphoniker, NDR-Symphony Orchestra, SWR-Symphonieorchester, Hr-Sinfonieorchester, Mozarteum, BBC Philharmonic, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Münchner Philharmoniker and Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.
