Dvořák wrote his Seventh Symphony while mourning the death of a child. Impassioned, defiant and glowing with melody, it’s one of those pieces that wrestles hope from tragedy, and it’s long been a special favourite of Sir Simon Rattle’s. Meanwhile the young Mahler and his forgotten friend Hans Rott search for their own voices, and Anton Webern finds his, in the jewel-like, emotionally charged miniatures that make up his Six Pieces.
