This is a perfect recording to my ears. I think Symphony No. 7 is a really good intro to Mahler, followed by No. 1. There are so many gorgeous themes running through this one-- as Mahler said, "The symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything." No. 7 certainly does. It's like a great text; a book which you want to read over and over again and each time get a little something different out of it. Claudio Abbado and the Berlin Phil render this with a light hand and make the music swirl around the listener like a great gust of air.
