Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Whereas the large orchestral work in the form of a symphony Mahler christened "Titan" (NO "Der") is radically different from Mahler's revised version that we know as the First Symphony (which should NOT be entitled Titan even if Blumine is included), and warrants inclusion in its own right in the collection of any ardent admirer of Mahler's music, the 1888 tone poem "Totenfeier" (Funeral Rites) which became the first movement of the Second Symphony was not so heavily revised, and most collectors will have acquired it as an add-on or a filler to other works if they have acquired it at all!
Mahler conceived it originally as depicting the funeral of the eponymous hero of "Titan", and even considered incorporating into the revised First Symphony, but its music fits perfectly into Mahler's depiction of the Resurrection. Whereas most will know the piece in this context, no conductor has yet had the temerity to record the Second Symphony with HIP forces (or rather HAP as we must designate them apparently-"Historically Aware Practices"), so this recording has the field to itself and may thus have wide appeal.

The musicological argument for performing the work in this manner is tenuous-by the late 1880s all the main orchestras were utilising modern string and brass instruments. However, the strings were gut, the brass instruments though valved were narrow bore, woodwind were just that-made of wood!-and timps were of the closed kettle-drum type played with small headed "hammers" and delivering a "thwack" rather than a resounding boom.
