Elegant and emotive music from two of Vienna's finest composers.

Mozart's Third Violin Concerto was written when he was only 19. It is full of youthful charm, with a slow movement of tender romance. The final rondo features a lively dance-tune associated with Strasbourg, from which the concerto gets its nickname, 'Strasbourg'.

Mahler's Fourth Symphony, which opens with jingling sleigh-bells, is one of his most delicate. Yet there is all the contrast you'd expect from Mahler - a quirky scherzo, and a slow movement of yearning beauty. The symphony ends with a soprano solo unfolding a child's vision of Heaven.
