Symphony No. 4 - Sinfonie der Lieder (Symphony of Songs)
for solo voice, children’s choir and wind orchestra

My 4th Symphony for solo voice, children’s choir and wind orchestra is inspired by a variety of 19th century German poems. The first three movements use lyrics from the same source as Gustav Mahler: Kindertotenlieder by Friedrich Rückert.

1) Ein Jahr ist nun geschwunden
2) Wenn zur Thür herein
3) Wiedersehn

The second half of the symphony continues on the death theme, using a poem by Heinrich Heine (‘Two Brothers’). The last two songs, ‘Early Spring’ and ‘Song of the Harlequin’ by Hugo von Hofmannsthal are a metaphor for rebirth, new life and hope.

4) Zwei Brüder (Heinrich Heine)
5) Vorfrühling (Hugo von Hofmannsthal)
6) Liedchen des Harlekin (Hugo von Hofmannsthal)
