Season opening 2011: Simon Rattle conducts Mahler’s Seventh Symphony

With this “unrelentingly brilliant” (Berliner Morgenpost) performance of Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony, Simon Rattle opened the Philharmoniker’s 2011/12 season. The most striking movement of the work is undoubtedly the overwhelming, celebratory finale. More nuanced, on the other hand, are the middle movements which conjure up a unique nocturnal atmosphere, full of poetry and nature, with a ghostly scherzo at its centre.
