Mahler's seventh symphony ranks among the composer's most popular and accessible works. Possessing neither a program nor a folk-song theme, it is a purely instrumental composition, both hopeful and romantic in mood, with a harmonic and stylistic structure that evokes the daily journey from dusk till dawn.
This miniature score is reproduced from an authoritative edition, complete with numbered movements for easy reference. Affordable and compact, it is ideal for use in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall.
Austrian composer and conductor Gustav Mahler (1860-1911) wrote chiefly symphonies and Lieder. Late Romantic in style, his tempestuous works reflect the anxious mood of Europe at the turn of the 20th century. Because of his Jewish roots, the composer's music was suppressed by the Nazis but has enjoyed a steady revival over the past five decades.
