York Symphony Orchestra: Mahler’s 4th Heavenly Voices
February 10, 2024 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
CGA Law Firm is proud to support the York Symphony Orchestra and sponsor concerts in their Classical Series.
This concert highlights composers from Gustav Mahler to Christopher Theofanidis that were inspired by the dreamland of heaven. Influenced by German folk poetry and his childhood, Mahler’s famous Fourth Symphony tells a tale of purely innocent joy and heavenly enchantment. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote the aria, Vorrei spiegarvi, oh Dio, to complement his sister-in-law’s vocals – opening softly with a melody and then culminating in a challenging finish. Moved by Hildegard von Bingen, Christopher Theofanidis developed Rainbow Body by weaving section from von Bingen’s Ave Maria for grace among restless, stirring sections.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Vorrei spiegarvi, oh Dio! (Let me explain, oh God!)
Hildegard von Bingen – ‘Rainbow Body Theme’ from Ave Maria, O auctrix vite
Christopher Theofanidis – Rainbow Body
Gustav Mahler – Symphony No. 4
