Symphony No. 6 in A Minor Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The appearance of this work brings Dover's miniature-score library of the nine Mahler symphonies to near completion; only Symphony No. 7 remains to be published. Dating from the composer's prolific period of 1903-4 and following Mahler's marriage to Alma Schindler by just a year, the draft of this remarkable work--subtitled "Tragic"--is represented by 28 current recordings. The symphony incorporates "portraits" of Alma in the first movement and of children playing in a diabolical Scherzo--a musical prediction, some say, of the tragedy that was to strike the Mahler family within three years.
