Thomas Beijer

In the Recital Hall this week, you will hear the 'other side' of Mahler: works for just a few musicians. In two Sunday Morning Concerts, these come together with those by contemporaries and friends. Today, Thomas Beijer plays a new work, his own arrangement of the serene slow movement from the Fourth Symphony.

Ruhevoll from Symphony No. 4

Thomas Beijer, the Dutch Music Prize 2022 winner, is a pianist and composer. Moreover, he enjoys making arrangements for existing music to make it accessible to his instrument. In this Sunday Morning Concert, he performs his version of the 'Ruhevoll (poco adagio)' from the Fourth Symphony. In it, Mahler paints his picture of a peaceful journey from the earthly to the heavenly - a beautiful combination with Stimme des Abends by befriended composer Zemlinsky. This is one of the 4 Fantasien über Gedichte von Richard Dehmel that Beijer performs. Works by Brahms and Janáček will also be heard.

Mahler Festival

From 9 to 18 May 2025, Het Concertgebouw is organizing a major Mahler Festival for the third time. After the Mahler Festivities in 1920 and 1995, all of Mahler's symphonies will be heard again in the Main Hall. Among others, they will be performed by the Budapest Festival Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Concertgebouw Orchestra, which was once conducted by Mahler himself. A selection of top soloists and choirs, led by conductors such as Iván Fischer and Jaap van Zweden, devote themselves to these monumental works. More information about the Mahler Festival can be found here.
