The third movement of Das Lied von der ErdeOf Youth – is the least sorrowful, and the shortest. The speaker expressed his pain in the first two, in different ways, and now enjoys the company of friends at a party. The original poem was titled “A party at Mr. Tao’s Pavilion” written by Li Tai-Po. Li and other poets lived for some time in the mountains, enjoying each other’s company, drinking, singing, and, of course, writing poems. All while living in and praising nature. Among the poets, there was Tao Mien. Most likely, this poem portrays a party at his house. The title change made by Mahler reinforces the theme of time passed and time lost subterranean to the whole symphony. The movement opens with two introductory beats by the horn and a triangle followed by a pentatonic scale theme played by the flute and the oboe. Look at the tempo indication: Behaglich heitercomfortably cheerful.
