    Mahler's Symphony No. 1

    Its first performance was in Budapest in November 1889, received by many critics with varying degrees of confusion and consternation resulting from their failure to understand it, "my time has not come yet" Mahler was reported to have said in later years. Indeed it did come forty years after his death in 1911. <BR/><BR/>1889 was the year when Dvojak's symphony No. 4 was born. Renoir finished his "Girls picking flowers'' a marvelous French painting and Van Gogh produced his "Man with a Pipe" and "The Olive Grove" beautiful Dutch paintings. Tchaikovsky gave us his ballet music - 'the sleeping Princess". Also Eiffel completed his tower at Paris - the mammoth 985 feet high, and, in the USA, they erected Tacoma building in Chicago; a 13 storey's high, the first sky-scrapper ever.<BR/> <BR/>Gigantic works provided by Perfectionists as they were. <BR/>Titans - offspring of heaven and earth. <BR/>Mahler was no exception. In fact he was a perfect fit and his conducting skills attest the intellectual honesty of the man. <BR/><BR/>Leonard Bernstein`s interpretation of "Titan" succeeded in creating that illusion, with such imaginary reality, without which very little can only be achieved.<BR/><BR/>To conduct Mahler's First Symphony is heroic, more so to perform a task that I am sure, Mahler had his lives challenges to be able to bring to its happy conclusion - alone.
