MAHLESymphony No. 7 in E Minor

Mahler’s brooding, enigmatic seventh symphony represents the composer at his most modern. Featuring such unconventional symphonic instruments as a cowbell, a mandolin, and a guitar, the symphony, which met with a baffled reception at its 1908 premiere, has gone on to ignite lively debate among scholars and composers worldwide. Often viewed stylistically as a portrayal of the transition from dusk to dawn, Mahler’s Symphony No. 7 brings audiences through shadow and light, from a tentative beginning to a triumphant finale. Mahler 7 is a beast of work to behold, and a treat for the mind as well as the ears.
