Program

At a moment that marked a highpoint in Central European Romanticism, Gustav Mahler–the man who eluded all early 20th century “isms” and redefined the concept of symphonies­–united a funeral march with folksongs, dance and even embryonic Expressionism in his Symphony No. 5. A symphonic jigsaw puzzle to which he returned time and time again, it is now a staple in concert halls throughout the world. Aside from its huge popularity, in the words of critic Paul Bekker, it contains some of the most magnificent passages from the history of music. 

Aggravations et final is a deep reflection on time, finiteness and the human condition, achieved through form and musical material. Gérard Pesson is one of the most outstanding French avant-garde composers, and this piece for orchestra is a fine example of his skills and approach to music, characterised in this last case by a subtle exploration of highly personal, sophisticated sounds, inspired, in turn, by hidden references and musical quotes, from Bruckner to Messiaen or to the famous  adagietto from Mahler’s Symphony No. 5.
