Free pre-concert event: Belief and Beyond Belief

Stephen Johnson

5:15 PM, ​ Blue Room, Royal Festival Hall, London

Writer and broadcaster Stephen Johnson, along with poet, novelist and biographer David Constantine, discuss Mahler’s Symphony of a Thousand, performed this evening.

Illustrating Mahler’s own spiritual landscape, the symphony uses the texts of a medieval hymn to invoke the creator spirit and the end of Goethe’s Faust, with its evocation of ‘the eternal feminine’.
