This week we finish our two week look at Mahler's monumental 5th symphony. We'll explore Part II, a massive 17 minute scherzo that is as complicated to understand as it is difficult to play and conduct. Then, of course, there is the Adagietto, the most famous of all Mahler movements. We'll talk about the all important tempo of the movement, which informs so much of about we understand its meaning. To finish things up, we'll talk about Mahler's both highly traditional and deeply unusual 5th movement.
