Gustav Mahler: 1st Symphony 3rd Movement 'Bruder Martin': Orchestra

Book Only | Orchestra
Personality Gustav Mahler
Publisher Bosworth Edition
Instrumentation Orchestra
The tune 'Brother John,' or 'Bruder Martin' to Mahler's recognition, is used in the third movement, titled 'Funeral March in the Manner of Callot,' to create a sense of irony. The inspiration for this section was a woodprint from a book of fairy tales. The print depicts forest animals serving as pallbearers at a hunter's forest funeral. The question is not so much, 'Are you sleeping (forever)?' as it is 'Are we mourning or celebrating?' The animals appear unsure whether to focus on the end of the hunter, or the end of the hunt. Mahler sets the tune in a minor key to stress this irony as the music moves between merriness and brooding. The tune appears as a canon, or round.
