After Mahler's 7th Symphony at La Fenice

The audience leaves La Fenice after tonight's performance of Mahler's 7th Symphony by Orchestra del Teatro La Fenice, conducted by Eliahu Inbal. Considered a journey from night to day (not that anything in Mahler is ever that simple), the symphony seems the perfect selection to conclude this Festa del Redentore weekend.


  1. Oh, I want to get to one of the New Year's Eve concerts there. I'd better get a ticket booked!

    What a beautiful theatre.

  2. That would be a great way to spend New Year's Eve--I hope you get a ticket.
    After being used to American houses like Carnegie Hall or the Met, SF War Memorial, and so on, I still can't get over how small La Fenice seems. It seems like the scale for which the works were written.
