Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 7: fragments from mvts. 2, 3 en 5

An exciting concert for children about six years and older. People couldn’t believe their ears when Mahler first conducted his Seventh Symphony. What were all those eerie sounds coming from the orchestra? What was all that rustling and murmuring? How could the melodies evoke such a mysterious atmosphere?

Let our orchestral musicians take you on a journey through the dark night. But don’t be afraid – you’ll be safe in their care, and there’s light at the end of the tunnel!
