Description
Briskness and clarity define this 2002 live recording of Mahler's "Titan" symphony by a conductor who has engaged with the complete cycle to great acclaim, both on disc and as head of the Seattle Symphony.

"Schwarz's intuitive grasp of Mahlerian rubato, the play of light and shade in the orchestral colors, everything is right."—American Record Guide

"The second movement of Mahler's Symphony No. 1 is a folk dance. The third movement is a spooky funeral march, with klezmer accents, based on the 'Frère Jacques' melody. The stormy finale begins with an alarming bang and builds to a huge climax. The symphony had a lot, maybe even too much, for 19th-century audiences to absorb. In 1899, audiences in Vienna hissed when they heard it; they were used to Brahms and Beethoven. But today, it's hard to resist the pull of a piece that begins like Mahler's First: The strings play a single note spread out over seven octaves. Mahler said it was 'like a sound of nature'."—Tom Huizenga, NPR
