Symphony Nr. 7
Last night I had the opportunity
Lorin Maazel and the London Philharmonic
Orchestra presented the performance
of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No 7
in The Royal Festival Hall.
This was to be performed in celebration of
the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth
on July 7, 1860 and the 100th anniversary
of his death on May 18, 1911
Gustav Mahler 1860-1911
Royal Festival Hall stands at the heart
of Southbank Centre complex by
the River Thames, with sweeping views
of the capital from the London Eye
and was opened in 1951
as part of the Festival of Britain
