Discussion: Mahler: Symphony No. 7 - Macal

This was my least favorite Mahler Symphony. It always seemed that after the 5th Mahler was confronting his own mortality and looking for a way of acceptance--without success. The 8th was the least genuine, but the 7th was the most lost. Haitink's Berlin account was my earlier benchmark, but this one is definitely in the game. I absolutely loved the Czech brass who play with a sound that few other orchestras have mastered. Macal ALMOST convinces me! I found the sound to be good, but I've enjoyed others that members have complained about.

quite good review of this in new gramophone, acknowledging it's SACD but not saying whether it's stereo only or also multichannel?!
