Francesco Lecce-Chong, conductor Marie Plette, soprano TAKEMITSU: Signals from Heaven MOZART: Symphony No. 40 MAHLER: Symphony No. 4 Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu’s bold brass fanfare Signals from Heaven is the fitting contrast to Mozart’s darkest and most turbulent orchestral masterpiece, the tragic Symphony No. 40 in G minor. Soprano Marie Platte’s angelic voice graces Mahler’s luminous Symphony No. 4, a work that juxtaposes the darkness of a dance of death with the celestial portrayal of a child’s innocent view of paradise.
