A Cartoon of Mahler

 

 

Symphony No. 2

From sketches to autograph full score

 

Outline diagram

 

 


 

This diagram seeks to provide a broad graphical outline of the way in which the Symphony was assembled over a period of six years - it does not follow all the conventions adopted for stemmatic diagrams elsewhere on this site, and does not seek to elucidate the stemmatic relations between the sources

The diagram includes some (but by no means all) of the lost manuscript sources in order to clarify the process of accumulation and composition.

The labels at the top of the image use, where possible, the movement designations or numbers employed by Mahler at the orchestral draft stage: the diagram seeks to reflect the change in overall order of movements probably made at some time in 1894.
