The Vanska M7 is very satisfying and keeps me entranced throughout the entire progression of the work. It's detailed oriented which works really well for the 7th. The phrasing is conscious with intent and really swings well, played with élan!

How is his phrasing?  Some of his Mahler phrasing in other works - I can't remember if M2 or M8, I felt were trying to be novel but felt odd.  Slowing when it should speed up or vice versa.

The phrasing feels natural and well shaped - and no irritating rubato as far as I can tell.  It's a real tight ensemble throughout.

How is the opening of the first movement, are the string articulations distinct or does it sound like tremolo?

It's easy to sample it: https://www.youtube.com/embed/vuf4hXL1TD8
