In Mahler's First Symphony, the composer's imagination was still being restrained by tradition. The first movement is, in essence, a beautiful nature scene, and then the Scherzo, the genre inherited from Beethoven, becomes a fiendishly developed dance. The third movement, with its slow tempo, reveals another remarkable world to us, while the pace of the finalé is downright dizzying. The worked was premièred in 1889 in Budapest, under the baton of the composer himself - during the period when Mahler was music director of the Hungarian Royal Opera House here.
