Bernard Haitink conducts Mahler’s Seventh Symphony

Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony is characterised by a mysterious and romantic mood, with the second and fourth movements bearing the designation “Nachtmusik”. The finale, however, is one of the composer’s brightest and most optimistic conceptions. Alongside Claudio Abbado and Sir Simon Rattle, Bernard Haitink has been the defining Mahler conductor in Berliner Philharmoniker concerts in recent decades. His performance of the Seventh was given in May 1992 during an entire series of performances of Mahler’s symphonies.
