Wiener Konzerthaus, Great Hall

Järvi / Mahler


Horizontal Tabs

In recent years Paavo Järvi has become such an important part of the family of conductors that Philippe Jordan has established since taking office that it is impossible to imagine the orchestra without him. After a celebrated performance last season of works by Mozart and Richard Strauss, he is now conducting the final festival concert of the current season. On the programme: Gustav Mahler's Seventh Symphony. This demanding work resembles a vast mountain range with chasms and ravines: performers need to traverse a treacherous ridgeway. From the depths of despair the work repeatedly returns to moments of transfigured peace. The musician, wrote Mahler, is like a sleepwalker. "He doesn't know the path he treads, but he walks toward the distant light - whether it be the ever-gleaming stars or an enticing will-o'-the-wisp!" Please note: This concert is presented as part of a cooperation between the Wiener Symphoniker and the Wiener Konzerthaus Society.
