Excerpt from Symphony No. 1, 4th Mvmt., arr. for alto & bass recorders
from: G. Mahler (1860-1911)
Starting at m. 175, transposed down a half step from Db major. Michael Steinberg says of this tune, after the extraordinary “bolt of lightning” (Mahler’s own term) of the opening: “The ensuing violence is suspended for some magical minutes as Mahler gives us the gift—in the soft pillows of D-flat major—of one of his most inspired lyric melodies.” From “The Symphony: A Listener’s Guide”, Oxford University Press 1995, p. 283.
Keyboard parts include separate recorder parts at no additional cost.
