The musical program of the “La Fenice” theater in Venice in May 2021 includes Gustav Mahler’s opera “Titan” conducted by maestro Myung-Whun Chung.

Gustav Mahler’s “Symphony No. 1 in D major” was composed over a long period of time, when Mahler had little time for composition, and had several revisions because the composer remained undecided for a long time whether to give the work the form of a symphonic poem or a symphony.

Premiering in Budapest November 20, 1889, the work was considered unusually grand and ambitious for the time, especially for a composer who was then not yet thirty and better known as a conductor. The work would not win full acceptance in the concert hall until Leonard Bernstein began advocating Mahler’s symphonies in the 1960s.
