Mahler—Symphony No. 5

Lecture no. 23 from the course: The 30 Greatest Orchestral Works

Mahler—Symphony No. 5

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 47 min | Categories: Music & Fine Arts

This groundbreaking work fuses the musical language of Romanticism with an entirely modern expressive content. Explore Mahler’s cultural milieu (including the influence of Freud and the ethos of Expressionism) as he develops the symphony as a medium for philosophical/spiritual contemplations. Track the Fifth Symphony’s unusual musical narrative, which depicts the rituals of death and the progressive states of the grieving process—its penetrating evocation of sadness, grief, intimate serenity, and ultimate rebirth.
