Gustav Mahler’s “Funeral Rites“ (literally translated: “Celebration of the Dead“) was initially conceived as the first movement of a symphony in C minor and completed in 1888. After certain alterations, – mainly cuts and extensions regarding the instrumentation – the piece became the First Movement of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 (study scores available with the number UE34315) a few years later.
Mahler himself conducted it as an independent piece with the Berlin Philharmonics in 1896.
