Pocket-sized Mahler

In his Piano Quartet - the late-Romantic outpouring of a brooding adolescent - the young Gustav Mahler gives us a glimpse into his soul. Its anguished music already gives us a foretaste of his symphonies, in which dark tragedy is never far away. It’s not for nothing that Mahler’s Sixth Symphony was nicknamed 'the tragic'. He has a huge orchestra – including bells and cow bells – say a resounding no to fate. In the transcription for a smaller configuration, the bitterness of this music remains undiminished.
