The premiere of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 in D Major

20 November, 1889


 

Symphony No. 1 in D major by Gustav Mahler was mainly composed between late 1887 and March 1888, though it incorporates music Mahler had composed for previous works. It was composed while Mahler was second conductor at the Leipzig Opera, Germany. Although in his letters Mahler almost always referred to the work as a symphony, the first two performances described it as a symphonic poem or tone poem. The work was premièred at the Vigadó Concert Hall, Budapest, conducted by Mahler, in 1889, but was not well received.

Mahler made some major revisions for the second performance, given at Hamburg in October 1893; further alterations were made in the years prior to the first publication, in late 1898. Some modern performances and recordings give the work the title Titan, despite the fact that Mahler only used this label for two early performances, and never after the work had reached its definitive four-movement form in 1896.

Premiera Simfoniei No. 1 în Re Major de Gustav Mahler

20 noiembrie, 1889

 

Simfonia nr. 1 în Re major a lui Gustav Mahler a fost compusă între sfârșitul anului 1887 și martie 1888 deși încorporează muzică pe care Mahler a compus-o în lucrările sale anterioare.

A fost compusă în perioada în care Mahler era al doilea dirijor al Operei din Leipzig, Germania. Deși în scrisorile sale Mahler a considerat întotdeauna lucrarea o simfonie, primele două interpretări au descris-o drept poem simfonic.

Lucrarea a avut premiera la Sala de Concerte Vigadó din Budapesta în 1889, sub bagheta autorului, dar nu a fost bine primită. Mahler a realizat câteva modificări importante pentru a doua interpretare, care a avut loc la Hamburg în 1893. Alte modificări au fost efectuate înainte de prima publicare a lucrării la sfârșitul anului 1898.
