Mahler Symphony No. 7 in E minor

Continuing our Music Director Edo de Waart’s Masterworks cycle of Mahler symphonies, the NZSO performs what has been described as Mahler’s most seductive and glamorous work, while also his most enigmatic, radical and forward-looking.

Mahler takes the listener through an extraordinarily varied landscape of sound, with his distinct second-movement nocturne flecked with guitar and mandolin, evoking a stroll through a Mediterranean town at dusk.

Written while Mahler holidayed in his summer residence, Symphony No. 7 is an intoxicating pageant, full of inventiveness and subtlety, ready-suited for a dazzling interpretation by Maestro de Waart and the Orchestra.

This concert is now available as part of a 2018 subscription. Non-subscription tickets will be available from 7 December 2017.
