Description

Symphony 5 on CD

This release is the fourth volume in Adam Fischer's fabulous survey of Mahler's symphonies. His previous volumes in the cycle have garnered widespread critical acclaim, including two Editor's Choices by Gramophone. The Fifth Symphony is one of Mahler's most loved works. Composed during the summer months of 1901 and 1902 at Mahler's holiday cottage at Maiernigg, the 5th Symphony features a trumpet solo that opens the work with the same rhythmic motive as the famous opening of Beethoven's 5th Symphony. The scope of the work is huge, lasting over an hour and requiring a large number of musicians. The fourth movement, Adagietto, is said to represent Mahler's love song to his wife, Alma, and is probably the composer's most performed piece of music.
