About this event
“It is my best work, with a primarily cheerful character”. This was Gustav Mahler’s assessment of his Symphony No. 7, which was also highly regarded by Arnold Schoenberg, who said, “I had an impression of absolute peace based on artistic harmony. Something able to set me in motion without recklessly unsettling my center of gravity.” Riccardo Chailly and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig focus on the musical qualities of Mahler’s Seventh Symphony, eschewing false pathos and sentimentality while giving up none of the music’s dramatic intensity.
“Even in a field of remarkable performances – this of all symphonies requires a terrifying amount of preparation – there’s none better than this one.” BBC Music Magazine
“Mahler’s Seventh Symphony, in which the composer pulled out all expressive stops and revealed himself to be an innovative modernist, has seldom been as persuasive and direct as in Chailly’s interpretation.” Frankfurter Neue Presse
This stream is available to watch until December 31, 2022.
