BARTÓK Violin Concerto No. 2; MAHLER Symphony No. 4.
American conductor and NYC native James Gaffigan leads the Juilliard Orchestra in a performance of the last of Mahler's symphonies, inspired by German folk poetry, Wunderhorn. Built around the central song melody of "Das himmlische Leben" ("Heaven's Life," sung in the final movement), Symphony No. 4 expresses the view of heaven from the innocent and imaginative perspective of a child.
