Mahler: Symphony No. 5

Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 5 in C sharp minor
Conductor Ensemble
  • >

Notes & Reviews:

Mahler's Fifth Symphony was completed in 1903, and subjected to immediate revision before the composer conducted the premier in Cologne in October the following year. For such a brilliant conductor and composer for the orchestra, the Fifth appears to have caused him much trouble, and he continued to revise and tinker with the score right up to his death in 1911. "I simply can't understand why I make such mistakes, like the merest beginner" he wrote, though it has since been viewed as one of his most popular and greatest works.
