InterviewGustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony: an introduction by Malte Krasting
Season opening 2022: Kirill Petrenko conducts Mahler’s Seventh Symphony
Kirill Petrenko first conducted Mahler with the Berliner Philharmoniker in 2020 with his Sixth Symphony. For the season opening in 2022, he conducted the Seventh – a piece characterised by night-time moods. “You will rarely hear the work with greater rhythmic precision”, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung pointed out, and the Tagesspiegel found that the Philharmoniker “played with sheer dizzying bravura, the solos of tenor horn and horn were unparalleled”.
