Mahler's massive, complex Symphony of a Thousand has been called the crowning achievement of his career. This setting is based on the closing scene of Goethe's Faust, with the theme of the redemptive power of love. Its form is a powerful synthesis of motet, cantata, oratorio, song cycle, and symphony. An unabridged replica of the 'Muzyka,' Moscow edition, 1976.
