Agree about your view of the 7th, Ford. Serenade or no, it's a kind of pastoral romp, peasants merrymaking, if you like. I have the Bertini Mahler cycle and I've always loved it, apart from the 8th.
An old friend of mine - a 78 fanatic, a man who talked about Beecham and Mengleberg, who wiped the dust off his records with anything lying about, including his children's dirty socks - said to me one day that a lot of Mahler reminded him of lightning hitting a shithouse, especially Solti's recording of the 2nd. I was reminded of this when you described the crashing aspect of the last movement of the First. Just thought I'd share it..
