  • Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 1, “Titan”

A monumental work written for an enormous orchestra, Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 (known as the “Titan”) is one of the most impressive and audacious first symphonies ever written.

The composer’s meshing of traditional and modernist ideas make the piece particularly innovative.

His use of bird calls, off-stage trumpets, and optimistic themes evoke youthful vitality, elegance and playfulness.

The foreboding harmonies, klezmer-like music, and a funeral procession using a minor version of “Frère Jacques” serve as a reminder that joy and sorrow both exist in life.

Chorale-like figures and fanfares suggest impending victory, but this combined with tension and angst-ridden melodies provide for an emotional ending complete with victorious horns and overwhelming jubilation.
