"This is movement IV."

(via lady-tromboss)

"And if you call me at 4 am, too sad to even say hello, I will listen to your silence until you fall asleep. If you need to cry I will not wipe your tears away because you are only human and sometimes tears are as close to laughter as you can get and that’s okay. If you get sleepy I will let you drool on my arm and I won’t laugh at you if you snore too loud. If you need to yell so hard that your voice cracks and your knees fail I will hold you up and yell with you. If you get so angry you punch your hands red I will ice your knuckles and tell you that wounds heal both inside and out, and just like the cold that is harsh and burning, I will always be the warmth to soothe you and make you feel better. I will love you."


From the 6th horn part of Mahler’s 5th Symphony, as marked by an unknown New York Phil hornist.

It’s understandable though. The 3rd movement is tacet as well. That’s like a half hour of solid tacet.
