Gustav MAHLER, Symphony no. 7 in e minor, “Song of the Night”

Third Orchestra Season 2018, Teatro Degollado

The OFJ continues its cycle of the Symphonies of Gustav Mahler under the baton of its Music Director, Marco Parisotto, by interpreting the Symphony No. 7, known to many as the Song of the Night.  Even though Mahler did not authorize this nickname for the work, it does seem to represent a journey from nocturnal shadows to the brilliant light of day.  Written in the summers of 1904 and 1905 in the composer´s usual summer vacation home in Maiernigg on the banks of the lake named the Wörthersee, in this score, Mahler brought to fruition one of the most complex purely instrumental pieces that he had ever written, yet without the sentiments of fatality and emotional devastation that permeate the Sixth Symphony (presented by the OFJ last season).  The fundamental pivot points which underlay this score are two movements of “night music”, the first a sonic representation of the Rembrandt painting The Night Watch; the second a reference to an evening serenade with Mahler’s first use of mandolin and guitar.

 

The Mahler Seventh Symphony will be heard for the very first time in Guadalajara on the 1st and 4th of November.
