    Welcome, Monteiros.

    I've been told many times that Mahler's symphonies and lieds are some of the best in the repertoire. I did give his first symphony a listen a few days ago, but for some unknown reason it didn't appeal to me much. May be listening to it a few more times will do the trick.

    Welcome, Monteiros. I like Mahler's music, but I admit I have yet to hear all of his symphonies. So far, his 2nd, 5th and 9th are my favorites.

    Default Thank you for your posts

    Dear Keemun, thenk you for your post, it is not easy to find people who admire or even know about Mahler`s music. I recommed to hear his 8th symphony, that work is not only his biggest one but also is his most spiritual and optimistic, and also shows a composer with excellent orchestration

    Hi, Opus67
    Why don't you try to listen to his 4th symphony first. I Think it is the most recommended for people don't know much about Mahler's works
