Mahlerian humor

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

This list of Mahler's instruction to musicians (h/t: Bruce Hembd at Horndog Blog) is a great April Fool's parody, and here are a few of my favorites:

Im Anfang sehr gemaechlich - In intense inner torment

Alle Betonungen sehr zart - With more intense inner torment

Sehr gemaechlich - With indescribably horrific inner torment

Von hier ab unmerklich breiter werden - As if wild animals were
gnawing on your liver
