Gustav Mahler: Symphony No.  1 ~ Funeral March
 
10:21
Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 1 in D major ~ Movement III Feierlich Und Gemessen, Ohne Zu Schleppen Mahler's inspiration for this movement was a children's woodcut (above) by the artist, Moritz von Schwind. The illustration depicts a torch-lit funeral procession of animals carrying a fallen huntsman.To describe this ironic and amusing scene, Mahler juxtaposes various musical themes in the movement to recreate the sense of irony the scene represents. The huntsman's funeral is firstly evoked by a minor mode version of the children's round 'Frère Jacques', then the oboes and trumpets offer a mock sentimental accompaniment in a Jewish Klezmer dance. A dreamlike melody from Mahler's 'Songs of a Wayfarer' is an interlude in the movement, and finally, the march returns back with a sudden rush of pace with the animals of the forest rushing the huntsman towards his grave. The irony of the movement? How unhappy are these animals with the huntsman's death? Performed by Leonard Bernstein; Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra

Igor Stravinsky "Suite Italienne" ~ IV. Gavotte con due variazoni
 
03:46
"Suite Italienne" ~ IV. Gavotte con due variazoni Igor Stravinsky's "Suite Italienne" is an chamber arrangement from his ballet, "Pulcinella", composed in the year 1920. It was greatly influenced by the "Commedia dell'arte" tradition of the 18th century. Among Stravinsky's musical influences in the piece are a variety of 18th century composers including Giovanni Battista Pergolasi, the Venetian Domenico Gallo, the Dutch diplomat Count van Wassenaer, & a Milanese priest Carlo Ignazio Monza. Although, traditional sounding on it's surface, the music is very "Stravinskian" in it's makeup. The harmonies, rhythms, and sonorities along with many other witty & quirky gestures throughout the music are completely Stravinsky's own. "Pulcinella was my discovery of the past, the epiphany through which the whole of my later work became possible." - Igor Stravinsky Performed by Itzhak Perlman, Bruno Canino

Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 2 "Resurrection" ~ III. Scherzo
 
10:31
Mahler's third movement is a Scherzo based on his own song "St. Anthony Preaches to the Fishes". It's a very sinuous and humorous sounding piece where Mahler tries to paint a musical image of the irony and fickleness of our everyday lives. It is a poetic metaphor where the people, like the fish, spend their everyday lives swimming aimlessly about, and while they may be temporarily moved by the Saint's words, they ultimately turn back to their vice filled lives. Mahler marked this movement in his score "with humor" for a sound of irony in the piece. Later on Mahler wrote in a letter to a friend about his music, "St Anthony preaches to the fishes, and his words are translated in the tipsy sounding language of the clarinet... and they all come swimming up to him, a glittering shoal of them, eels, carp and pike with their pointed heads, I swear while I was composing, I really kept imaging that I saw them sticking their stiff immovable necks out of the water and gazing up at St. Anthony with their stupid faces, I had to laugh out loud... The Bohemian music of my childhood home has found it's way in many of my compositions, but especially in my "St. Anthony Preaches to the Fishes"." Performed by Zubin Mehta; Vienna Philharmonic

Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 2 "Resurrection" ~ I. Allegro Maestoso
 
20:58
Gustav Mahler's "Resurrection" Symphony was first premiered in 1895 with great acclaim. Here in the first movement, dramatic and stormy tension often collide back and forth with softer and lyrical elements in this movement, aiming to creating a sense of internal strife and discernment with the listener. Originally, Mahler conceived this movement as a musical tone poem about the internal strife with death, and the labeled the movement as "Todtenfeier", which means "Funeral Rites". He later incorporated it as an integral part to his great 2nd Symphony concerning death and resurrection, "Die I will, so that I might live!". Performed by Zubin Mehta; Vienna Philharmonic

The fifth movement of Mahler's symphony contrasts very much from the other worldly beauty of the "Urlicht" movement, where the message of childlike faith is deeply expressed with all sincerity. Here, the music is the actual beginning of the Finale of the symphony where a vision of paradise is seen from a far. Themes of aspiration, resurrection, and redemption appear throughout the music and slowly build to the grand finale and conclusion at the very end of the symphony.
