2014: A Padmore Cycle

2020 VISION

Schubert Symphony No. 2
Thomas Larcher A Padmore Cycle
Nielsen Symphony No. 4 (The Inextinguishable)

Thierry Fischer conductor
Mark Padmore tenor
London Philharmonic Orchestra

In the eye of the storm: 1814 brought temporary peace to Europe, and the teenage Schubert’s delightful Second Symphony seems to dance for joy. A century later in 1914, Carl Nielsen saw Europe tear itself apart before turning to his volcanic ‘Inextinguishable’ Symphony: in which the human spirit itself battles for life in music of elemental power. And then 2020 Vision takes us back to the very different Austria of 2014 – and the haunted song-cycle that Thomas Larcher created for tenor Mark Padmore out of the poetry of his Alpine homeland. With Padmore himself as soloist, it doesn’t get more authentic than this.
