Mahler, G.
Sym. No. 1 – this score is from the Archives of the New York Philharmonic, and is an amazingly vivid scan of Mahler’s own score, all 176 pages of it. As you go from page to page, the pages turn before your very eyes. The score (reproduction) size is a bit small to read the notes clearly, but you can see Mahler’s original markings in the score in blue and red pencil. What an age we live in.
For lagniappe, also on this web page are recorded samples of all the Mahler symphonies. There is also a feature (link at the bottom of the page) on Mahler when he was in New York. Thank you, NYP.
