Sometimes called ‘Song of the Night’, Mahler’s Seventh Symphony is a journey from night to day. An opening movement inspired by an evening boat ride on an alpine lake, two ‘Nachtmusik’ movements and a ghostly scherzo give the work its nocturnal quality before sunlight emerges in its jubilant finale.
