Mahler Symphony No.10 in F-sharp Major arr. White
i. Andante-Adagio
ii. Scherzo
iii. Purgatorio
iv. Scherzo. Nicht zu schnell
v. Finale. Langsam, schwer

Mahler’s Symphony No. 10 in F-sharp major was his final composition, written at a time of great turmoil in his life. At the time of his death, the composition was substantially complete, but not fully elaborated or orchestrated. Only the first movement is regarded as reasonably complete and performable as Mahler intended.

Christopher White has been a soloist at the Deutsche Oper Berlin since August 2014, and Head of Music since 2017. He has worked as a pianist and conductor for the Glyndebourne, Bayreuth, and Salzburg Festivals, as well as English National and Frankfurt Operas. As a soloist, he has performed piano concerti by Beethoven, Brahms and Rachmaninov with the London Orchestra of the City as well as Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto in the Berlin Philharmonie. A recording of his arrangement of Mahler’s Tenth Symphony is available on the Divine Arts label.
