PROGRAM: MAHLER SYMPHONY NO.7
Mahler’s Seventh is the dark horse of his symphonies. This fascinating and rarely performed masterpiece will intrigue and delight. No wonder it has become a signature work for Sir Simon Rattle. The heart of this symphony is ‘music of the night’, with Mahler taking inspiration from Mozart serenades and lovers singing beneath windows, creating a nocturnal kaleidoscopic dreamworld. Mahler Seven, says Sir Simon, follows a ‘journey from night to an almost blinding dawn’. Spend the night with Mahler and the LSO and you too can take that sonic and emotional journey.
