The Royal Festival Hall


 

Symphony Nr. 7

Last night I had the opportunity
to hear
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
