Symphony No. 2 by Gustav Mahler, known as the Resurrection Symphony, was written between 1888 and 1894, and first performed in 1895. This symphony was one of Mahler's most popular and successful works during his lifetime. It was his first major work that established his lifelong view of the beauty of afterlife and resurrection. In this large work, the composer further developed the creativity of "sound of the distance" and creating a "world of its own", aspects already seen in his First Symphony

Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2 'The Resurrection' has become a staple of the orchestral repertoire throughout the world. The reason is clear: in addition to Mahler's dealing with the meaning of life in the first movements he provides a final movement that ranks along with the Verdi Requiem and Schoenberg's Gurrelieder as some of the most glorious loists writing in the literature. Bruno Walter recorded this work with the same forces in stereo in 1957 for Columbia (now Sony). This is NOT that recording! If mono doesn't bother you and you are only interested in the performance, and can't get the later one, then this one is certainly of value. Any Bruno Walter Mahler is worthy, considering how many years he apprenticed under Mahler. Amazingly, in this recording, the bottom pedal notes of the organ come through strongly.

Mahler: Symphony No. 2 In C Minor - "Resurrection". New York Philharmonic, Bruno Walter, The Westminster Choir, Emilia Cundari & Maureen Forrester. Symphony No. 2 In C Minor - "Resurrection" : I. Allegro Maestoso. Your browser does not support the audio element. 2 In C Minor - "Resurrection" : II. Andante Moderato. 2 In C Minor - "Resurrection" : III. In Ruhig Fliessender Bewegung. 2 in C, Resurrection. For the sake of superior audio reproduction, Bruno Walter's studio recording for CBS of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2 in C minor, "Resurrection," is to be preferred over this live recording of his February 17, 1957, radio broadcast from Carnegie Hall. But this reissue from Music and Arts may still hold interest for collectors who will regard this recording as an important piece of Walter memorabilia, since it marked his farewell to the New York Philharmonic and was one of his last performances of this symphony in its entirety.
