Live at the Concertgebouw - Mahler’s mysterious Seventh

On air: 11 June 2012 8:00 - 9 July 2012 8:00 (photo: Gustav Mahler)

More about:

“…Gustav Mahler’s mysterious Seventh symphony is about to be performed by the RCO led by the French composer and conductor Pierre Boulez. As part of a complete overview of Mahler’s symphonies the Concertgebouw celebrates Mahler’s birth in 1860 and commemorates his death in 1911.
Great Mahler conductors like Bernard Haitink, Ivan Fischer, Mariss Jansons and Pierre Boulez share their life long experience with Mahler’s music with us. All of these concerts have been completely sold out long in advance. That remains a remarkable phenomenon. After so many Mahler events here at the Concertgebouw, Mahler’s music still captivates audiences…” [RNW-host Hans Haffmans]
