Mahler directs us to ponder the meaning of life and suffering in his Symphony No.2. The work opens as a funeral rite, while the second and third movements recount memories of bliss before conveying hopelessness and futility. A sliver of hope glimmers in the fourth movement, and eventually the power of faith vanquishes desperation. As Mahler once described this masterpiece: “One is battered to the ground and then raised on angel’s wings to the highest heights”—an apt description indeed of the “Resurrection” Symphony.
