Transcendental Mahler

Mahler’s 7th Symphony is not one of the popular ones–and it’s not one of my favorites either–but a portion of the first movement is truly wonderful.

So treat yourself to some music you may not have heard before. Begin at 10:04. This section starts slow, but a treat awaits you with the harp at 11:29.

The rest of the movement is more typically Mahlerian. Stay with it for quite a trip.
