Program Notes

Symphony No. 4 in G major by Gustav Mahler was written in 1899 and 1900, though it incorporates a song originally written in 1892. The song, Das himmlische Leben, presents a child's vision of Heaven. It is sung by a soprano in the work's fourth and last movement. A child, voiced by a soprano, presents a sunny, naive vision of Heaven and describes the feast being prepared for all the saints.
