When I started writing the show this week, I realized there’s so much to get into that each movement really does deserve to have its own special show, so this week we're focusing on the second movement of Mahler 9. There are a few ways to hear this movement: as the idealization of a genuine country dance, as a pure satire of country life that Mahler was forsaking forever, or as a combination of the two. This is a remarkably sophisticated movement hiding beneath a veneer of banality. Thanks for listening!
