|Soloist||Tara Erraught, Mezzo-Soprano|
|Mahler||Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (Songs of a Wayfarer)||17'|
|Shostakovich||Symphony No 7 Leningrad||80'|
Song and Symphony
German romanticism and a lyric sensibility rub shoulders in four richly-scored and moving songs by Gustav Mahler. By sharp contrast, Shostakovich’s Seventh Symphony resonates with the rhythms of war. The Leningrad became a symbol of Russian defiance when in August 1942 a half-starved and heroic orchestra played it through loudspeakers to the surrounding German forces in one of the deadliest sieges in history.
