The all encompassing Mahler Symphony #1
I import often as a cellist for symphonies, along with writing and recording music. I just played the Mahler symphony with the Helena, Mt symphony. I've considered Mahler to be a master of orchestration, he knew every instrument and its capabilities.
I inspire to create, but this masterwork runs the gamut of emotions. Many of the misfortunes of my past were conjured up as I played this with the Helena Symphony this last weekend. I always knew Mahler was a master orchestrator, but the depth of this work is beyond words.
Please listen to the wonderful work...with good headphones or speakers.
