Mahler: Symphony No. 1
London Symphony Orchestra
Valery Gergiev (conductor)
Mahler completed his First Symphony at the age of 24 and the work was considered a remarkable achievement, especially for someone so young. The symphony was originally conceived as a tone poem in the form of a symphony. Mahler drew inspiration from nature and described the epic final movement as a journey ‘from inferno to paradise’.
