|Extra Information||The work originally had five movements. The original second movement, an Andante referred to as "Blumine", was discarded by Mahler by 1896 and therefore not present in the first published score (1899). In 1966, Mahler biographer Donald Mitchell discovered the omitted movement in an 1893 Hamburg manuscript of the symphony which had been donated to the Yale University library by James Osborn. This movement was published in 1966 by Carl Fischer and is still under copyright in the USA. See the note on the Discussion page.|
