Mahler: from Britten Sinfonia Programme Note

“… Mahler believed in taking inspiration from the sounds that surrounded him in daily life – birdsong, the sound of cow bells, folk song and hunting calls – and incorporating these elements of the everyday into his works.  A symphony, he believed “must be like the world.  It must embrace everything.””
