About This Performance
The Adagietto (fourth movement of five) may be Mahler’s most famous single piece of music, perhaps best known for its use in the 1971 Visconti film Death in Venice. Marked sehr langsam (very slowly), it lasts for approximately 10 minutes, and is written for harp and strings alone. The Adagietto was conducted by Leonard Bernstein at the mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York, on the day of Robert Kennedy’s burial.
