Mahler: Symphony No. 7

Symphony 7
5.  Symphony 7 by G. Mahler
The list author says:
  "Kubelik is more straight forward than some. I like this Live version even more than the studio recording for DG. I wish they left in the applause though."
$15.33   Used & New from: $9.23
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Symphony No. 7 in E Minor
6.  Symphony No. 7 in E Minor by Gustav Mahler

  "Scherchen made the very first recording of this work. This was made a few years later, but it gives an impression of the early 50's take on Mahler."
Used & New from: $14.50

Conducts Mahler
7.  Conducts Mahler by Klemperer
The list author says:

3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Symphony 7
8.  Symphony 7 by Gustav Mahler
The list author says:
  "Horenstein's live account of the Seventh.  No Mahler fan will want to be without. Better playing and sound than Barbirolli also on BBC Legends."
Used & New from: $23.50
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Symphony 7
9.  Symphony 7 by Mahler
The list author says:
  "Barbirolli in an live performance. You have to make some concessions for the playing here. This work requires an absolutely virtuoso orchestra, but this slow, heavy performance should be heard."
Used & New from: $37.75
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Mahler: Symphony No. 7
10.  Mahler: Symphony No. 7 by G. Mahler
The list author says:
  "Rattle's 7th has much going for it. Very well thought out in general. Some interesting thoughts on the inner movements. It is strange how meticulous he is about some things, but careless about others."
Used & New from: $0.60
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Mahler: Symphony No.  7 / Diepenbrock: Im Grossen Schweigen
11.  Mahler: Symphony No. 7 / Diepenbrock: Im Grossen Schweigen by Riccardo Chailly
The list author says:
  "Chailly leads one of the most overwhelming 7th's. Barbirolli and Bernstein come close, but I think this one takes the cake for the interventionist school of Mahler interpretation. Epic and Lusty!"
Used & New from: $10.99
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Mahler: Symphony No. 7
12.  Mahler: Symphony No. 7 by G. Mahler

$9.99   Used & New from: $0.94
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)
