The second entry of Gerard Schwarz and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic's cycle of Mahler's symphonies, this 2008 Seventh is considerably better than their first entry, a coupling of the First and Ninth released the year before. For one thing, the orchestra seems more polished and prepared here. The ensemble strings are sweeping the opening Allegro's big climaxes.
Symphony No. 7 by Gustav Mahler was written in 1904–05, with repeated revisions to the scoring. It is sometimes referred to by the title Song of the Night (German: Lied der Nacht), which Mahler never knew (and certainly would be unlikely to have sanctioned). Although the symphony is often described as being in the key of E minor, its tonal scheme is more complicated. The symphony's first movement moves from B minor (introduction) to E minor, and the work ends with a rondo finale in C major

This album celebrates Gerard Schwarz at the top of his game, conducting music close to Jerry’s heart. Maestro Schwarz served long tenures as music director for the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and later the Seattle Symphony, and made over 100 recordings with those orchestras. Many of these recordings are being rereleased through Naxos
Schoenberg regarded it as the work that signalled the end of romanticism, the historic moment at which all the tenets that had sustained music for the previous century began to crumble away. The symphony's sense of inhabiting a twilight world in which all the old certainties were being questioned and found wanting - two of its most disconcerting movements are labelled "Nachtmusik" - perhaps led to its nickname, The Song of the Night
