RESEARCH SEMINAR: Dr Jeremy Barham

Dr Jeremy Barham offers a solution to a long-standing mystery concerning Mahler’s declared use in his Fifth Symphony (1901-2) of a hitherto unidentified theme by folksong composer-singer Thomas Koschat. He explores the context and mechanics of the borrowing, assessing its untapped significance for understanding the structural unfolding and wider meaning of the Symphony.
