Mahler, Gustav - Symphony No. 1 - Uppsala Chamber Orchestra

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Gustav Mahler started work on his First Symphony in Kassel in 1884. Three performance attempts in 1889, 1893, and 1894 were undertaken before he found the final form for the music in 1896. At its premier in Budapest in 1889 he called the piece a "Symphonic Poem in Two Parts" but changed the title to "Titan, a tone poem in symphonic form" for performances in Hamburg in 1893 and Weimar in 1894. It was not until the next performance in Berlin in 1896 that the title became "Symphony for Large Orchestra." When his composing was at its most intensive in 1887-88, "when it became too overpowering and all floodgates inside me had opened and it raced out of me like a mountain stream," he even had to apologize to the opera management for neglecting his work. He described himself as being "in the midst of a trilogy of passions and a whirlwind of life." Mahler was right, but he hardly expected that the reactions would be so negative. He even found that no one would talk to him, that "everyone avoided him like the plague." When new performance opportunities turned up in Hamburg and Weimar, he added descriptive headings and a program for the music in order to help out the listener. But it was, if possible, an ever greater defeat, and ahead of the next performance in Berlin in 1896 he reworked the music by cutting out all "road signs and milestones" and giving the movements new headings. He also cut the second movement, Blumine, and left the remaining four movements intact. On the other hand, he gave the music new instrumental attire by expanding the size of the romantic orchestra he started with, nearly doubling it. Blumine, which was included as the second movement in the original version of the symphony, has its own interesting story. It was first part of the incidental music Mahler composed in Kassel in 1883 for Der Trompeter von Säkkingen (The Trumpeter of Säkkingen) by Joseph Victor von Steffel, before Mahler incorporated it in his symphonic poem. But Blumine, like the early manuscripts for the symphony, was lost, not to be discovered until 1959. The Blumine music was performed for first time after 1894 at a concert conducted by Benjamin Britten in 1967.
