Freya Goldmark

Saturday 12th March 2022, Oxford Town Hall

Goldmark & Mahler

Goldmark's Violin Concerto is an appealing work filled with lyrical melodies, and with a virtuoso dance-like finale. Mahler's 6th Symphony, despite some of its themes evoking his wife, children and pastoral mountainside, is a work dominated by tragedy, and the famous hammer blows of fate towards the end of this powerful symphony presciently depict Mahler's future adversity.
