The first violin part for Mahler's Symphony No. 5 has been edited by Norman Carol, the legendary former concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra, who held the position from 1966 to 1994. Carol's bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.
Symphony No. 5 by Gustav Mahler is a composition of large musical and emotional scale. The work is generally regarded as Mahler's most conventional symphony up to that point, yet it still has a number of unconventional elements, such as opening with a funeral march. There are five movements in total, but the first two can easily be viewed as essentially a whole. The fourth movement, Adagietto, may be Mahler's most famous composition. It is the most frequently performed of his works and is said to represent Mahler's love song to his wife Alma. Symphony No. 5 ends with a Rondo, in the classical style.
