The printable version of this page includes
while the printable versions of the other 8 Mahler symphonies uses 56 instead of 55. The problem is that using Safari, MacOS X 10.4, when printing this version, it doesn't respect changes that make the font size larger -- the printed font size doesn't change no matter what is chosen on screen. IMHO this is a mistake.
Merging Adagietto (Mahler)
Do we really need a separate article for just the Adagietto. It seems to me the length of the article would be perfect for a movement by movement analysis of this symphony. Centy – – 21:26, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
- We really don't need a seperate article, I believe. I agree with Centy. — Andy W. (talk/contrb.) 21:52, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Agreed. Someone knowledgeable about this should write a section for each of the five movements. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:34, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Bernard Haitink conducted an Adaigietto that clocks in at 13:56 (amazon asin# B00469IRZQ). Seaniekaye (talk) 17:41, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
It could even be merged without writing a section for the other four movements. Frequently articles give much more extensive coverage to the most popular movement of a symphony, sonata or concerto than to the other movements, 220.127.116.11 (talk) 04:41, 10 March 2012 (UTC)Bart Wentink
Anonymous User:18.104.22.168 tagged this section in May 2007 with the summary that it was a "mess". In fact there is nothing wrong with the tone of this quite straightforward account of the symphony's composition. The tag might well be removed by any editor. --Wetman (talk) 14:36, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
Key reference should be the score, but the problem is that Mahler, even after the publication of the second Peters score (IMSPL) of 1910 didn't regard the orchestration as final (See < refDonald Mitchell "Discovering Mahler" Boydell and Brewer 2007 pp 267 -269, and ff ref>. Most of the other technical points raised can be addressed by a quick look at even the 1904 Peters score (also on IMSPL) but Mitchell shows that the work was being continuously reorchestrated until Mahler's death. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 19:42, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
- The socre is a primary source, but an article based on primary sources alone or predominantly would have to be rejected as original research. BTW: it's IMSLP, not IMSPL. --FordPrefect42 (talk) 17:33, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
Use at Funera; of RFK by Bernstein
I believe the article is incorrect, Leonard Bernstein conducted the Adagietto movement at John Kennedy memorial at the Washington Cathedral in Nove 1963 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:47, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
