Gustav Mahler once said that the symphony should be like the world – “it should embrace everything”. And in his huge Seventh Symphony, that’s exactly what it sounds like he’s trying to do. Every Mahler symphony is a great emotional journey; but this one sweeps from an overcast Alpine lake through lovesongs, nightmares and nocturnal marches to an ear-splitting finish hung with jangling cowbells and laced with pitch-black humour. In short: Mahler doesn’t get much more Mahlerian than this – just as Haydn’s quietly subversive 88th Symphony sums up all its composer’s warmth and wit in a colourfully-painted nutshell. Thomas Dausgaard ends this Edinburgh series in a blaze of laughter and light.

Prelude: 2.00pm (free to ticket holders)
Thomas Dausgaard introduces the concert and discusses composers and the roots of their music.
