Beautiful full color facsimile of the autograph fair copy in the possession of Het Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, published on the occasion of the Orchestra’s “Mahler-feest 1995”. Contains numerous erasures & revisions, with major but non-structural differences from the printed score, including the elimination of a contrapuntal section from the second movement. Introduction analyzes relationship of surviving sources; these include a copyist’s ms & a “cancelled” sketchbook in Vienna, and two sketch-drafts in New York. Mahler conducted Wagner's Meistersinger overture directly after a performance of the Seventh Symphony to emphasize the tribute of the symphony's finale to Wagner.
