Mahler Symphony No. 1, Titan
Conductor: Osmo Vänskä
Repertoire: Symphony No. 1 in D major
Often considered one of the most impressive first symphonies ever written, Mahler’s First, begun when the composer was just 24, contains a wide sound world featuring evocations of birdsong and nature, rustic dance rhythms, an oppressive funeral march and exquisite melodies. Music Director Osmo Vänskä leads the Minnesota Orchestra through this mighty symphonic journey, originally recorded at Orchestra Hall in March 2018, as Vänskä and the Orchestra continue their exploration of all ten symphonies of Gustav Mahler.
