    Gustav Mahler - Sym No 1, 3rd Movement

    The Symphonies of Gustav Mahler contain some amazing music. I have always regarded this as one of his more interesting pieces...a Yiddish funeral march based on Frère Jacques, lol.

    Mahler, Symphony No 1, 3rd Movement

    Mahler, Symphony No 1, 3rd Movement - MP3

    Enjoy,
    Bill

    Interesting Bill and such a wonderful mock-up. You are
    really good at reproducing any type of art-form music.

    BRAVO, Bill

    The first time I heard Mahler performed live, it was this symphony. Enjoyed it as much now as then. Wonderfully spacious rendering.

    Thanks Jack. I confuse myself sometimes, lol. Mozart then Mahler then Bach then Brahms. Honestly, they all have their demands and challenges and I love doing all of them. I would be remiss if I didn't say that doing demos is the best way to learn. When I do demos, it helps my writing and my writing helps with my demos.

    Gotta love Mahler. This saturday evening I am going to see the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra do Mahler's 5th. (If I can rob a bank or steal the ticket price somewhere).

    Great job

    A first rate demo. I'm not sure if i've heard this before so thanks for posting it.

    Maybe someday someone will be posting demos of your music.

    I just took a quick listen to TM and yeah, I think so.

    While listening, it's very easy to forget that this is a "mock up". Very nice handling of the instruments.

    Bill,

    Great job realizing this! Such a great piece! So much work! Enough with the exclamation marks... Seriously, you did a fine job of making this sound musical, and not mechanical; there were a few spots where I'd like to hear a bit more swing (in the Klezmer-like passages) but that is soooo hard to without actually people playing it. Still, the fact that it never sounded organ-like, is a tribute to your work (and Mahler's orchestration!).

    Thanks for showing us how well GPO can perform in the hands of an expert.
