Mahler's final symphony. An introspective and powerful work, written at a time when Mahler was deeply concerned both for his own health and for the health of his marriage. It begins with a plaintive melody played by violas alone and from there there is everything from that right up to some searing, towering and disturbing chords. Although Mahler composed all the material for the symphony it was left only partly orchestrated at his death, and we will play the version completed by Deryck Cooke.
