Product Details


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" and represented by 28 current recordings--incorporates 'portraits' of Alma in the first movement and of children playing in a diabolical Scherzo--some say, a musical prediction of the tragedy that was to strike the Mahler family within three years. Unabridged republication of the work originally published by C. F. Kahnt Nachfolger, 1906. Instrumentation. [6 1/8 x 8 1/2, 256 pp.]
