The sound level is too low, turn your volume up!
Gustav Mahler: The last 10 minutes from the Finale of his 10th Symphony.
That symphony is unfinished, only a torso. Written in 1910/ 1911. The Mahler-experts Deryck Cook and Berthold Goldschmidt created this performing version of that torso, you're listening here. Performed by the Berliner Sinfonieorchester, the conductor is Kurt Sanderling.
For me the whole symphony, especially the Finale, is the most beautiful music ever known. That last 10 minutes start after a shocking dissonant climax of bitterness, when the strings and horns turn the hard emotions down again.
Good listening with all!
