Mahler: Symphony No. 7 Product Overview Editorial Reviews The Seventh remains the least well-known of all Mahler's symphonies. Preciselybecause its material is so enormously wide-ranging, its colors so thrillinglykaleidoscopic, this work is also perhaps the one from all the composer's canonmost reliant on a knowing, strong-willed interpretive presence. This MichaelTilson Thomas provides in spades in one of his finest performances on disc. The Seventh has been given the picturesque epithet "Song of the Night" becauseof its preoccupation with a nocturnal sound world, by turns creepilyunsettling and sweetly charming in the three middle movements. But MTT clearlyunderstands what's at stake here in the larger architecture of the piece,particularly in the problematic, ambiguous meanderings of its two giganticouter movements. He keeps the flow of invention keenly on course from themarvelous cantorial tenor horn opening against dark, plodding chords, so thatthe expanse of Mahler's imagination has freedom to roam but with purpose. Thejuxtapositions of richly characterized solos with ensemble work of brilliantchoreography from the London Symphony seem to constantly open up new sonicvistas, perhaps most tellingly in the Elysian chimera announced by sweepingharp glissandi at the development's climax. MTT's sense of scale is right ontarget for the strange rhythms of the spectral scherzo and for the enchantingintimacy (cum mandolin and guitar) of the serenading second "Nachtmusik." Inan interview, MTT compares the finale to "having psychotic breakswhile conducting a performance of _Meistersinger_." While several notches below the seismic force that propels Bernstein'sexuberant second recording of the Seventh, this account conveys its emotionalrichness and insight in thrilling recorded sound. The booklet notes are by oneof the best in the business, Michael Steinberg. _--Thomas May_ Details: Orchestra: London Symphony Orchestra Conductor: Michael Tilson Thomas Composer: G.
