Mahlers Zevende Symfonie, geschreven tijdens de zomervakanties van 1904 en 1905, is de laatste van drie zuiver orkestrale Symfonieen. Mahler herzag de partituur meerdere malen. Het is een merkwaardig en moeilijk te doorgronden werk. De Symfonie bevat twee zogenaamde 'Nachtmusiken' waarin weer wat van de oude 'Wunderhorn'-sfeer terug lijkt te keren. Opvallend is verder het gebruik van koebellen, gitaar en mandoline
