Semyon Bychkov conducts Mahler’s Fourth and a new work by Larcher

Mahler’s Fourth occupies a special place among his symphonies because of its delicate transparency: a sunny idyll that seems to be faced with a constant threat, however. “It contains the cheerfulness of a higher and, for us, unfamiliar world that holds something eerie and horrifying,” Mahler said. The conductor of this performance is Semyon Bychkov; also on the programme is a new piano concerto by Thomas Larcher, with Kirill Gerstein as soloist.
