Mahler Symphony No.7
Vasily Petrenko conductor
Ellie Slorach conductor*
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir
Post Concert Question Time - starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (Music Room) with Chief Conductor Vasily Petrenko and Christopher Brooks 2017 Prizewinner, Grace-Evangeline Mason.Mahler called it his ‘song of the night’, and his Seventh Symphony begins in a boat on an Alpine lake and ends with trumpets raised and cowbells jangling. Along the way there are distant bugles, moonlit serenades and spine-chilling terrors: Vasily Petrenko will bring out all its fabulous colours, as well as its black humour. But first, join the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir and the young British composer and 2017 Christopher Brooks prizewinner Grace-Evangeline Mason for a brand new tribute to the composer inspired by the letter writing of Gustav Mahler.
Vasily Petrenko will provide an introduction from stage before this concert, to help you get even more from the experience.
