Example text

Mahler cannot be reconciled with the notion of standard competence; while he at first is not in complete possession of it, he then violently shakes it in order to demolish its self-righteous prejudice, and finally cultural fetishism; not the least response is anger. All this was perpetrated within tonality. Perhaps alienation effects are only possible on somewhat familiar ground; if this is entirely relinquished, they too dissolve. The structure of Mahler's chords follows triadic harmony entirely; everywhere there are tonal centers of gravity, nowhere is the usual tonal idiom excluded.

The mute will of music penetrates speech. Music addresses itself in words, as protest. The intention reappears solemnly in the Hymn of the Eighth Symphony, in the invocation of the Paraclete. But in turning to consolation music seeks less to express it than itself to console. This is always mingled in Mahler with a feeling of the futility of mere consolation. -conscious: not without reason is the bell chorus of the Third thematically coupled to the Fourth Symphony, the absurd dream of a bleating and mournful solace.

Conversely, the images are also broken by the symphonic tendency, the totality of which obliterates the immediacy of details. In the poems with which Mahler's music is steeped, those of the Wunderhom, the Middle Ages and the German Renaissance were themselves already derivatives, as if printed on broadsheets telling of noble knights that are yet halfway to being newspapers. Mahler's affinity with his texts lay less in the illusion of coziness than in a premonition of unaltered, savage times that overtook him in his ordered late-bourgeois existence, perhaps motivated by the indigence of his youth.
