Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 7
Mahler's Seventh Symphony

The Concertgebouw Orchestra continues its successful Mahler series with the Seventh Symphony. Almost 110 years ago, in October 1909, Gustav Mahler himself led the Concertgebouw orchestra in the Dutch premiere of his No. 7. How did the audience in the Main Hall respond to the kaleidoscopic work with its nocturnal atmosphere, its unconventional choice of instruments, such as the mandolin and guitar, and its blazing finale?

Nachtmusik

In contemporary reviews Nachtmusik I and Nachtmusik II, the second and fourth movements, received the most praise. Slowly but surely the symphony as a whole eventually won the hearts of music lovers everywhere.
