Claudio Abbado conducts Mahler: Symphony No. 7

Claudio Abbado conducts Mahler: Symphony No. 7 Lucerne Festival Orchestra

About

Over the years at the end of summer in Lucerne, Claudio Abbado expresses his love of Mahler, without any concern for the numbers of the symphonies or for their chronology.

After the Second Symphony (2003) comes the Fifth (2004), and before the Sixth (2006) and the Third (207), here is the Seventh performed on August 17th 2005, again with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra of which he has been the musical director since 2003. His special fondness for Mahler dates back to his years of training with Hans Swarowsky in Vienna, where he became acquainted with the culture of Central Europe, from the literature to the fine arts.
