The Mahler Seventh comes not from a commercial recording but from someone connected with the Concertgebouw Orchestra. Made in 1983, it is of excellent fidelity but also suffers somewhat from the stridency problem. Possessed of the two mysterious “Night Music” movements with the devilish scherzo in between, plus a gangbusters rousing conclusion in the key of C, the Seventh has been my personal favorite Mahler symphony for some years. The Dutch audience is very quiet in spite of this being an exciting live recording.
