Concertgebouw/Boulez Mahler 7th Tues.

Jul 15, 2013

Join us Tuesday at 7 PM as the Royal Concertgebouw, led by Pierre Boulez, performs Mahler's 7th Symphony in concert. The orchestra gave the work's second performance under Mahler's baton in 1909; Boulez is one of its noted interpreters. Mahler wrote the work, sometimes called "The Song of the Night," in his composition hut in the Austrian alps (pictured). Also on this SymphonyCast broadcast are Webern's Six Pieces for Orchestra.
