Bernard Haitink conducts Mahler’s Fourth Symphony

Gustav Mahler’s Fourth Symphony captivates with its slender dimensions and incomparable variety of expression. There is an interplay of naivety and irony, of childhood and presentiment of death, one of Mahler’s most beautiful slow movements, perhaps his most eerie scherzo, and finally an unconventional last movement with a radiant soprano solo. Here you can experience the work in a performance with Bernard Haitink, recorded in 1991 at the Konzerthaus in Berlin.
