Mahler's symphonic farewell explores the totality of life. True to his own words, Mahler once said, "A symphony must be like the world. It must contain everything." It doesn't take long before the music oscillates between titanic, vehement power and beauty on the scale of stars. Ultimately, he converges on a sound resting in shimmering, eternal wonder.
