Description

London Young Sinfonia

Bertie Baigent, conductor

PROGRAMME:

Paean: 'earth's crammed with heaven", Bertie Baigent

Symphony no 4, Gustav Mahler

St Marylebone organ scholar Bertie Baigent conducts this thrilling conclusion to our festival. Bertie is a conductor and composer currently studying for an MA in orchestra conducting at the Royal Academy of Music. He brings The London Young Sinfonia is an exciting and dynamic group of young professionals and some of London's finest student players. Recent performances have included Schumann's Piano Concerto, and a touring production of Mozart's Cosi fan tutte; future plans include a concert of Viennese music from Schubert to Schoenberg, and the world premiere of Alex Woolf's Violin Concerto with internationally renowned soloist Julia Hwang.

Mahler composed his Fourth Symphony between 1899 and 1900. One of his most charming and song-like works, it marks the end of his so-called 'Wunderhorn' years of obsession with early German folksinger and poetry. Tonight's performance is of the deft chamber orchestra arrangement by Erwin Stein. It is paired with a new work by Bertie Baigent: an overture based on the works of the poet Robert Browning, who was married in St Marylebone Church.
