Symphony No. 7, Mahler

Haitink Conducts Mahler

8:00 PM
Thursday, April 9, 2015

Former CSO Principal Conductor Bernard Haitink leads one of Mahler’s most enigmatic yet enticing symphonies. Abandoning the programmatic stories of his early symphonies, Mahler presents a vividly orchestrated, magical tour following his own dictum: “A symphony must be like the world—it must embrace everything.” Unforgettable are the haunting horn calls, which open the second movement’s “night music,” awakening a throng of animated sounds.
