M

ahler's Symphony No. 2 - later nicknamed the "Resurrection Symphony" - with its five movements, the unusually large instrumental ensemble and the use of solvoices and choir, probably went beyond all limits at the time of its premiere. Today, no large orchestra can get past this popular piece.

 

At the same time, the composer worked on the setting of the lyrics from "Des Knaben Wunderhorn". Both Des Antonius von Padua Fischpredigt and the song Urlicht find their way into the symphony.
