Gustav Mahler said, “A symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything.” The “Resurrection” Symphony, one of his most popular and successful works, answered the metaphysical challenge of Beethoven’s Ninth. Both symphonies share a turbulent beginning and a triumphant conclusion with a choral centerpiece. While Beethoven saved his idealistic resolution until the final movement, Mahler opens with a motive that recurs at the symphony’s culmination. He goes on to explore life, death and immortal triumph for the human soul on a vast scale, until, in the finale, off-stage instruments explode the musical space, engulfing the listener in dimensions far beyond the concert hall.
