Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra

Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Philharmonia Orchestra perform Mahler’s cosmic First Symphony.

Growing from an ethereal, barely audible seven-octave chord in the strings, this is music that is truly `like the world’.

Containing within its walls the rustling sounds of nature, a street band, klezmer and even a satirical version of Frère Jacques, Mahler builds to one of the most joyful, rocket-fuelled codas of any symphony.

Also on the bill, hear David Fray perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.2.

`In short, Fray presented himself as a poet.’ (Chicago Tribune)
