This week, we take a deep dive into part 1 of Mahler's monumental 5th symphony. Looking at the first two movements of the piece, we talk about Mahler's unusual idea of symphonic structure, his brilliant orchestration, and the unfiltered emotional impact that makes listening to Mahler symphonies so overwhelming. We'll also talk about Mahler's embrace of the past, present, and the future in his music - a wholly unique combination that makes Mahler like no other composer. Thanks for listening!
