The Fifth Symphony is the last work Mahler wrote before a world of grief fell upon him and his family. Mahler said "a symphony is like the world: it must embrace everything," and this is true of the Fifth Symphony. The work opens with a funeral march and concludes in triumph; all of life's travails and joys are present. Bernstein grasped the duality of the work, balancing ferocity and tenderness. The opening "Trauermarsch" is dramatic, and the Scherzo almost demonic. In the famous Adagio, the New York Philharmonic strings sing with an elegant, noble tone

Symphony No. 9 by Gustav Mahler was written between 1908 and 1909, and was the last symphony that he completed. It is actually his tenth symphony, as Mahler gave no ordinal number to his symphony with voices Das Lied von der Erde. A typical performance takes about 75 to 90 minutes. Though the work is often described as being in the key of D major, the tonal scheme of the symphony as a whole is progressive. While the opening movement is in D major, the finale is in D♭ major.
