Auferstehung (Resurrection) Chorale from Symphony No. 2

Mahler, Gustav

Arr. Maiden Mueller, Spike


  • Ensemble: Horn Ensemble
  • Genre: Classical
  • Grade: 4
  • Duration: 6.0 minutes
  • Catalog Number: AOS1122

Many, though not all, dynamic markings herein are the original from the orchestral score. This chorale was originally scored for almost completely a capella voices, with just a bit of low strings sneaking in to bolster low bass parts and provide color, and the mezzo-soprano solo taking up the highest line. Keep this and a careful sense of balance in mind when making decisions as to actual dynamic levels. I have added a few louder markings where I believe it will help preserve balance and clarity of contrapuntal lines.

It is customary to take tempi at a slower pace than indicated, with fermatas and cesuras (my additions to the score) given considerable weight. This must be balanced against the conductor's knowledge of his or her players' numbers (it would certainly be permissible to double parts, which would facilitate longer phrases with fewer audible breaths,) breath capacity, and dynamic capabilities.
