Program Notes

Urlicht, which translates from German as "Primeval Light," is the fourth movement of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 2, the Resurrection Symphony.

The symphony was written between 1888 and 1894, and first performed in 1895. Apart from the Eighth Symphony, this symphony was Mahler's most popular and successful work during his lifetime. It was his first major work that established his lifelong view of the beauty of afterlife and resurrection. In this large work, the composer further developed the creativity of "sound of the distance" and creating a "world of its own", aspects already seen in his First Symphony.
