The Gustav Mahler symphonic music requires the listener a particular availability. Who is convinced that music can not be understood except as an autonomous art, who accepts the Mahler symphonies with the order related conceptions of art ideas pour the art can not understand the essence of this art. The Mahler symphony is accessible only to the one who is willing to look at it for what it really is: an art in many ways originated from ideas and religious ideas, philosophical and literary. In Mahler like no other composer of the nineteenth century they are joined tightly religion, worldview and symphonic music. They are a varied spiritual world, you must know if you want to fully understand the symphonies of Mahler. The Second Symphony is the work of Mahler in which the religious-metaphysical aspect of his art is manifested most clearly. The topic of this work is the eschatological nature, in a theological sense. With the conception "in the program" of the Symphony and with the insertion of poetic texts Mahler sought in artistic form to answer all the questions on which his thinking deep thinking: questions about the meaning of life and death and the condition man and the world to the end of time. The faith he professed so I think immortality is formulated in a very personal way. The text in the verses he wrote specifically for the Finale of the symphony culminates in the knowledge "I am going to live." The Finale of the Second (ended in June 1894) can be described as a grand "musical picture" of the Last Judgment, the Resurrection and eternal life.
Very interesting is the performance of Mariss Jansons in this concert recorded live in Amsterdam on December 3, 2009
