"Symphony No. 4" is concretely linked with Henze's own music-theatre works: Originally, it constituted the finale of Act II of his opera "König Hirsch".
Even "Symphony No. 5" is connected to the music theatre: A 'leitmotif' appearing in all three movements goes back to Henze's song 'My own, my own' from his opera "Elegie für junge Liebende". As in "Symphony No. 4", the music returns from the stage back to symphonic music.
