About this album


“I am happy that the Dutch TV company VPRO made a documentary of
our recording of this great symphony. This film is available on the internet.
[YouTube/Mahler 7/Iván Fischer] It documents my efforts in proving that
the last movement of Mahler’s seventh symphony – despite some doubts
of Mahler experts – is a masterpiece. This work is often seen as enigmatic,
fragmented, less accessible than the other, beloved Mahler Symphonies.
May this recording contribute to a revalidation!
Mahler returns here to a perfect balance. He ended the 6th Symphony in
a tragic minor key. Here he offers us the full journey from darkness to
light. And what a journey it is! Please note the most magnificent scherzo
framed between the two unique night music episodes! I love this

– Iván Fischer
