Mahler Symphony No. 3 – Violin I Part

Edited by Ilya Kaler

Title: Symphony No. 3
Composer: Gustav Mahler
Instrument: Violin
Edited By: Ilya Kaler
Instrumentation: Orchestral
Pages: 33

The first violin part for Mahler's Symphony No. 3 in D minor has been edited by Ilya Kaler, who has appeared as guest concertmaster with the San Francisco Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra and Baltimore Symphony. Kaler's bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.

Mahler's Third Symphony is the composer's longest piece and also the longest symphony in the standard repertoire, with a performance usually lasting around 90-100 minutes. Symphony No. 3 is perhaps one of Mahler's most extroverted compositions, spread over an unconventional six movement format. It calls for the similar large-scale performing forces as needed in his Second (Resurrection) and Eighth (Symphony of a Thousand) Symphonies. Due to its length and scale, it is performed less frequently in concert than Mahler's other symphonies. However, it remains a popular work recorded by most major orchestras and conductors, and it offers one of the most all-encompassing musical statements of Mahler's world view centered on nature.
