Music Monday: Mahler's Ninth in 6 1/2 minutes

Date: 8/17/2015

For today's Music Monday, we bring you a distilled version of Gustav Mahler's sprawling Ninth Symphony. Usually a 90-minute performance (approximately), accordionist William Schimmel has squeezed this immense musical masterpiece down to just 6 1/2 minutes.

Trumpeter Wynton Marsalis also makes a cameo, riffing on patterns Schimmel created from the gorgeous motif of Mahler's heart-melting opening theme. Enjoy!
