Gustavo Dudamel and the world-class RCO begin the evening with the perennially delightful Overture from The Magic Flute, one of the Salzburg genius's many masterworks that combines elements of the fugue and the sonata. For the first time, Gustavo Dudamel leads the Concertgebouworkest with its illustrious Mahler tradition in a symphony by Gustav Mahler. Relative to the rest of Mahler’s œuvre, the Symphony No. 4 is comparatively short, airy in tone and lightly scored, yet it is no less ambitious in its conception – the final movement, entitled Das himmlische Leben, is a childlike vision of heaven. It is beautifully sung in this performance by the Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling.
