The world première of Mahler's Symphony No. 1. took place in Budapest: this work by the young musical director of the Hungarian Royal Opera House was greatly anticipated both by the audience and within the music profession. Critics ended up divided, and mostly dismissive. Kornél Ábrányi Jr, for example, wrote a detailed account of his reservations, using an expressly ironic tone in describing the birdsong: "an atmospheric village idyll, with woodland buzzing, bird whistles, cuckoo calls, and, to make the ornithological world even more complete, the crowing of cockerels is also included, serving to awaken the huntsmen whose horns merrily blend into the polyphony of sounds.”
