Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 7 in E minor
Mahler's Seventh Symphony is the strangest and most inscrutable of Mahler's symphonies, and therefore also the least known. It is innovative and way ahead of its time, but for us it shines like a star.
It is a symphony of victory - not on a personal level, but a journey through the night towards a new day. The modern audience recognizes in the different movements different shades of life itself; from funeral marches to nocturnal strolls, from a grotesque parody of a waltz to nocturnal serenades. And then beams of light as the day triumphantly breaks through and triumphs over the night. Mahler himself said that "this symphony begins auspiciously and ends happily".
