MOZART Violin Concerto No.3, 'Strassburg'

MAHLER Symphony No.4

Elegant and moving music from two of the finest composers ever to call Vienna their home. Mozart's Third Violin Concerto, written when he was only nineteen, is full of youthful charm, with a slow movement of tender romance. The final rondo features a lively dance tune associated with Strasbourg, from which the Concerto gets its nickname. Mahler's Fourth Symphony, which opens with jingling sleigh-bells, is one of his most delicate. Yet there is all the contrast you'd expect from Mahler: a quirky scherzo and a slow movement of yearning beauty, ending with the finale's soprano solo unfolding a child's vision of Heaven.
