About This Performance
Although Mahler’s masterful Ninth (1908-1909) has the traditional number of movements (four), it is unusual in that the first and last are slow, rather than fast. This work was to be Mahler’s last completed symphony – he died in May 1911, without ever hearing it performed. The work’s quiet, almost unbearably poignant ending was for many years interpreted as being a self-conscious farewell to the world – until increased knowledge of the unfinished Tenth made this interpretation much less likely.
