About This Concert
Under-appreciated in its own time, Mahler’s sumptuously structured Symphony No. 7 receives the brilliant interpretation it deserves from our own esteemed Osmo Vänskä.
Symphony No. 7 / 90 min
- Minnesota Orchestra
- Osmo Vänskä, conductor
- Leonard Bernstein viewed the Seventh as a comment on the breakdown of bourgeois society, praising it as “ironic and exciting and ultimately heartbreaking.”
- In the third movement, the composer gives the cellos and double basses a dynamic marking of fffff, instructing them to ‘pluck the string so hard that it hits the wood’.
