Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 1 / Royal Flemmish PO, Edo de Waart: conductor

Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 1 in D major "Titan"
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Gustav Mahler came of age in the late 1880s, as the long and storied tradition of Austro-German Romanticism reached its peak. As a conductor who regularly performed the great works of that tradition, Mahler knew this past intimately, and felt its weight. This recording of Mahler's First Symphony is conducted by Edo de Waart, Chief Conductor of the Royal Flemish Philharmonic. Immersing himself in the musical world of Mahler, de Waart tries to discover what motivated Mahler and how this symphony took shape as a sequence of experiences: the first two movements progress from youthful springtime to confident adulthood; the last two from death to heaven.
