We’re going to be getting more ambitious at the next Book Club as we tackle the 2nd movement from Mahler’s Symphony no. 1 – “The Titan”. Don’t be put off though – remember we can’t hear you play! We’ll be discussing the piece and we value any feedback or discussion you’d like to bring.

You can find the music by clicking here: https://imslp.org/wiki/Symphony_No.1_(Mahler%2C_Gustav) The trumpet parts are in F, but there are Bb versions which can be sent to anyone who wants them.
