This transcription of the Gustav Mahler’s TITAN Symphony has been made in meeting the technical reflexes of the organist. This means that it is not a simple reduction of the orchestral score to the organ, but thought an arrangement for organ and organist, while respecting the character and colors of the original work.
Thus, some of the existing elements in the original symphony have been removed and others added or rewritten and we have to avoid mainly to imitate the orchestra, either by phrasing, tempi, and the registration.
We have to play this transcription as an organ work, just like it would have been written for organ first.
