Mahler Symphony No. 7 Speaker symbol

Not to be missed is our third concert, comprising Mahler's stunning Seventh Symphony, written at the height of his success as conductor and composer, and exemplifying his famous quotation: ‘A symphony must be like the world; it must contain everything.’ The seventh is rightly reckoned rather enigmatic, but contains, after a funeral march, the exquisite 'night music' movements and a demented waltz of a scherzo, an exultant climax.
