Clear photographs of the instruments and their components are included along with fingering charts and diagrams.

Symphony no. 3 by Gustav Mahler( )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in No Linguistic content and French and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A masterpiece first played by the Gürzenich-Orchester. The premiere of Mahler's Third Symphony took place in June 1902 in Krefeld (not far from Düsseldorf) but it was indeed the Gürzenich-Orchester of Cologne who gave that first performance, greeted with acclaim. This was not always the composer's experience with his masterpieces. Originally conceived as a hymn to Nature, in which the inert chaos of the opening movement is gradually left behind, the work calls for enormous forces (large orchestra, women's choir, boys' choir and contralto soloist) and, at each hearing, leaves an unforgettable impression on the audience. Such was the case in October 2018, when François-Xavier Roth led the esteemed successors of the work's first interpreters in this latest Mahler adventure."
