A little musical education

Mahler's 5th Symphony. Please note that the embedded video is approximately 72 minutes long, as it encompasses all five movements of the symphony. Please note also that I don't know a thing about the orchestra performing the piece, so I can't vouch for the quality of the performance.

My partner and I attended the Tulsa premiere of this symphony on Saturday. It's a stunningly complex, emotional, vibrant, contradictory piece of music.
