Symphony No. 2
- (Melbourne Symphony Orchestra)
- Format: CD
- Features: 2PC
Mahle'r Deepest feeling about life and death, his anger at the disparity between the possible and the actual, his love if German folk culture, his memories of the music from his early childhood, his belief in music as a vehicle for the banal as well as the divine, are major concerns in all his pieces. His symphonies are at once epic and intimate, exultant and despairing, the revelations of a great humanist and a great doubter - no more so than in his mighty choral ' Resurrection's Symphony.
