Maestro Roberto Abbado presents us Mahler’s Fourth Symphony. Deemed as the most approachable Mahler symphony, its classical nature and tunefulness is endearing indeed. In its last movement, rising American soprano Lauren Snouffer elucidates a child’s sunny and naïve vision of heavenly abundance. Barber’s lush and richly textured piece Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and Wagner’s amorous Tannhäuser Overture conclude a most pleasurable concert.
