Mahler Symphony No. 2

By the power of the shuffle granted unto me, today I heard the finale of this symphony for the first time. Below is probably the loudest version on youtube. You may, as I do, prefer Bernstein conducting, but it really needs to be heard loud.



Information on Mahler's Symphony No. 2

The original German and translation of the finale is pretty awesome. Only the Germans could have a word for 'piercer of all things' - Alldurchdringer.

Ouch.
