The Symphony No. 5 by Gustav Mahler was composed in 1901 and 1902, mostly during the summer months at Mahler’s holiday cottage at Maiernigg. The musical canvas and emotional scope of the work, which lasts over an hour, are huge. The fourth movement may be Mahler’s most famous composition and is the most frequently performed of his works. It is said to represent Mahler’s love song to his wife Alma. It lasts for approximately 10 minutes, and Mahler’s instruction is Sehr langsam (very slowly). After its premiere, Mahler is reported to have said:  “Nobody understood it. I wish I could conduct the first performance fifty years after my death.”

The eight cello – or better still with cello orchestra! – version of David Johnstone leaves no part or even single bar unaccounted for. The harp line is frequently shared between two cellos in pizzicato. This is a work for mature cello ensembles, and offers great rewards for patient practice of the textures. It is difficult but is certainly playable! A conductor should probably be considered for performances of more than eight cellos. All German musical texts are translated into English in the General Score.
