Mahler - Symphony No. 1
Composed when Mahler was twenty-eight, Titan exudes youthful exuberance and joy, though it then gives way to melancholy and introspection. The composer was ultimately to shape the history of the symphony – and the clues to his long-term intentions were there for all to see in his first attempt at the genre.
