Mahler, Gustav - Symphony No.4
Fomina, Sofia / Lso
Star Russian soprano Sofia Fomina joins the London Philharmonic Orchestra in this live performance of Mahler’s vision of heaven, his Fourth Symphony, under the baton of Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski. Her silvery-toned voice perfectly radiates the childlike innocence of the text.
Vladimir Jurowski is a master at revealing the underlying orchestral textures with great clarity, and makes this performance sparkle.
