Simon Rattle conducts Mahler’s Seventh Symphony at the Royal Albert Hall

In 2016, Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker presented Mahler’s Seventh Symphony as part of the London Proms concerts. The Sunday Telegraph described the performance as “a miracle”: “It seemed by the end that everyone (in the orchestra) had had a chance to shine – including Rattle himself, who made the electrifying contrasts of the last movement so extreme they felt like a hallucination.”
