On-sale dates
The Guildhall Symphony Orchestra in the Barbican Hall

Guildhall Symphony Orchestra tackles two masterworks of the 20th century - Mahler's Fourth Symphony and Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.

Stravinsky’s revolutionary ballet score famously caused a riot on its premiere and Mahler’s Fourth Symphony features in its last movement the exquisite song ‘Das himmlische Leben’, offering a dream of ‘The Heavenly Life’. The Guildhall Symphony Orchestra’s second concert of the season is conducted by Japanese conductor Takuo Yuasa, who last conducted the orchestra in 2016.

Promoted by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
