As Mahler’s first purely instrumental symphony since his First, the Fifth Symphony occupies a pivotal place in Mahler’s endlessly fascinating output. Composed during the summers of 1901 and 1902, following the meeting of Alma Schindler in Vienna the previous winter, this symphony is reflective of the composer’s personal life with its trajectory from mourning to triumph.
