Mahler: Symphony No. 5

In this video

Gustav Mahler was the last composer to write large-scale symphonies. Nine to be precise (the 10th remained unfinished) which often include vocal parts. This video contains the fifth symphony for orchestra. Played by the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie, lead by Rudolf Barshai. Symphony No. 5 was composed in 1901 and 1902, mostly during the summer months at Mahler’s holiday cottage at Maiernigg. The most distinctive features are the trumpet solo that opens the work with a rhythmic motif similar to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, the horn solo in the third movement and the frequently performed Adagietto The symphony is sometimes described as being in the key of C# Minor, Mahler objected to the label himself ‘and to avoid misunderstandings the key should be omitted’.

Composer: Gustav Mahler
Artists: Junge Deutsche Philharmonie, Rudolf Barshai (conductor)
