Rolf Martinsson and Gustav Mahler in Stockholm

In May Lisa Larsson returns to the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. Her conductor is the internationally renowned Spanish conductor Gustavo Gimeno. ›Ich denke Dein ...‹ by Rolf Martinsson was the result of a close collaboration between the composer and Lisa Larsson. The piece consists of poems by Goethe, Eichendorff and Rilke set to music, with the common theme of love. The world premiere took place in 2015 in Zurich. For the 4th movement of his 4th Symphony Mahler used the ›Wunderhorn‹ poem ›Das himmlische Leben‹ in which Heaven’s bucolic pleasures - musical and, above all, gastronomic - are described and catalogued with verve, enthusiasm and precision.
