To celebrate Make Music Day this year with a classical and original event, head to the Louvre Pyramid on Tuesday, June 21st.
Starting at 10pm, there will be a live performance of Mahler’s Symphony N°4, directed by Daniel Harding and featuring soprano Christina Landshamer.
In his fourth symphony, Mahler dreamed of heavenly life. Using a poem by Knaben Wunderhorn, his work fell in line once again with extravagant mainstream culture and somewhat nostalgic folklore: “The angelic voices gladden our senses, so that all awaken for joy.”
Symphony n° 4 in G major
