ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Gustav Mahler's Seven Early Songs are influenced by the Wunderhorn theme to which he returned in his symphonies No.1 - 4. The title alludes to Alban Berg's song collection of the same name, which was composed at the same time as Mahler's Wunderhorn material in his early symphonies. Tonight's version is a recent transcription by German composer and conductor Eberhard Kloke "as a composed interpretation", dedicated to the soloist Anna Prohaska.

Antonín Dvořák's Symphony from the New World, has been an all-time favourite with audiences worldwide. When premiered at Carnegie Hall in 1893 with the New York Symphony Orchestra, it was an immediate success and quickly became the composer's most popular work. Audiences in Italy may remember the MCO performing this symphony, unter the baton of the orchestra's Conductor Laureate Daniel Harding back in 2012.
