Hear the first symphonic efforts of these magnificent composers, Brahms set out to create a symphony and ended up with a piano concerto as full-on as a symphony. Mahler set out and created a gargantuan masterpiece from its gentle opening, like the first blinking stars in the night, to the famous funeral march and rousing fanfares. Simply, spine-tingling music that will leave an impression on all.
