James Conlon conducts Mahler’s Seventh Symphony, a haunting walk from dusk to dawn. In his Seventh, Mahler introduced instruments rarely heard in an orchestra (tenor horn, guitar, mandolin) and unusual techniques ("pluck the string so hard that it hits the wood") to create a uniquely moody night and a blinding break of day.
