Symphony 7
Artist: Mahler / Orchestre National De Lille / Bloch
Format: CD

More Info:

Alexandre Bloch, who has been Music Director of the Orchestre National de Lille since 2016, has chosen to devote a whole season of concerts to Mahler's symphonies. The Seventh (1904-05) is the most rarely recorded of the cycle - unjustly, because this work later nicknamed 'Song of the Night' testifies as clearly as it's companions to the metaphysical grandiloquence that haunted Mahler during it's gestation. From the gloomy Adagio of the first movement to the thundering Rondo that concludes the work, Alexandre Bloch and his orchestra lead us from the anguish of twilight to the ecstasies of dawn.
