Most widely held works by Michael Tilson Thomas
Symphony no. 7 by Gustav Mahler( )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mariss Jansons's international reputation as a Mahler conductor is indisputable. During his tenure as chief conductor of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Jansons did not record a full cycle of Mahler symphonies. With this new 2016 recording that project is now nearing completion. Mahler himself led the Concertgebouw Orchestra in the Dutch premiere of the Seventh in October 1909. How must the audience in the Main Hall have reacted to this whimsical work with its night-time atmosphere and eerie sounds? Although this vast symphony, featuring a number of unconventional instruments like the mandolin and guitar, did not catch on right away, it would slowly but surely win the hearts of music lovers everywhere
