Conductor: Pierre Boulez The Cleveland Orchestra Soprano: Juliane Banse Symphony No. 4 in G major by Gustav Mahler was written in 1899 and 1900, though it incorporates a song originally written in 1892. The song, "Das himmlische Leben", presents a child's vision of Heaven. It is sung by a soprano in the work's fourth and last movement. Although typically described as being in the key of G major, the symphony employs a progressive tonal scheme ('(b)/G—E'). 0:00 I: Bedächtig, nicht eilen (Moderately, not rushed) – sonata form 15:17 II: In gemächlicher Bewegung, ohne Hast (Leisurely moving, without haste) – scherzo and trio 24:46 III: Ruhevoll, poco adagio (Peacefully, somewhat slowly) – theme and variations 44:47 IV: Sehr behaglich (Very comfortably) – strophic
