I’m not crying. You’re crying.

Secrets, lies, love and obsession: for centuries, the symphony has been the ultimate canvas for composers to express their innermost thoughts and feelings at scale. Join presenter Paul Rissmann as he explores the motivation behind four landmark works, in a playlist that ranges from classical beauty to unadulterated horror.


HAYDN Symphony No.104: Finale
BERLIOZ Symphonie fantastique: 5th movement
MAHLER Symphony No.5: Adagietto
SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No.5: 4th movement

Paul Rissmann presenter
Benjamin Northey conductor
