For years, Mahler's incessent thoughts were of symphonic proportions, and he turned to the novel Titan by Jean Paul, a major work of German romanticism, as inspiration for his first forray into the genre. An overture inspired by Scottish legends and a virtuosic concerto open and close this voyage into the heart of the 19th century.
