Symphony No. 1 in D Major, "Titan": III. Feierlich und gemessen, ohne zu schleppen (10:08)

Cover of Symphony No. 1 in D

From Symphony No. 1 in D and 14 other releases

An interesting treatment of wildly disparate musical elements - but done so well that it borders on magic!

First we have a macabre presentation of the famous French folk song Frere Jacque - but presented in the minor mode and with some variation to the tune… followed by a section that reminds the listener of Mahler’s Jewish roots… and then a very tender section that is very direct in its emotional appeal…

Mahler finally returns us to the opening theme with reminders of the second section to complete this most ingenious and completely satisfying movement.

The orchestration is vintage Mahler… specially with the exquisite use of percussion.

    И это мажор? Красивое произведение, несмотря на мрачную мелодию, ласкает слух. Эпидемия холеры пришла в средневековый город, беда уже постучалась почти в каждый дом. Измученные горожане уже не знают что предпринять - от траурных шествий до мрачного веселья. Но зараза не знает жалости, и каждый день новые смерти. Уже скоро будет некому хоронить. В этой атмосфере всеобщего горя одни лишь дети беспечны и веселы.

    By the way, there is a group about Gustav Mahler, too.
