Santa Rosa Symphony - Tiers of Heaven
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.
