Gergiev conducts the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra in Schubert No. 4 and Mahler No. 4 at Carnegie Hall

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage - Carnegie Hall

Schubert anointed his Fourth Symphony “Tragic,” but this might be the affectation of a young Romantic, since the work owes much to the Classical symphonies of Haydn and Mozart—a fact also reflected in its Classical era–styled orchestration. There’s nothing tragic about Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, where a sense of magic inhabits a radiant work that opens with the earthy sound of ringing sleigh bells and ascends with a child’s song extolling the joys of heaven. There’s also Debussy’s revolutionary Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, the dreamy, subtly colored masterpiece that heralded a new age of music. —Carnegie Hall
