Programmes

The gateway to Gustav Mahler’s cosmos, with the ecstatic conclusion to his First Symphony, may sound wonderfully light and musically beguiling, but the composer’s initial efforts with his inaugural attempt at the genre were difficult, and he went through multiple versions before finding its definitive form. It was during this process that he scrapped a movement with the title «Blumine», which Yutaka Sado now revives for discussion as part of his comprehensive Mahler explorations. It follows Sergei Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto, which promises powerful emotions. The young Japanese pianist Kyohei Sorita, who has long been a familiar face with the Tonkunstler Orchestra, won a silver medal at the 2021 Chopin Competition.
