  • Music by Gustav MahlerFinale from Symphony No. 8

Alles Vergängliche
Ist nur rein Gleichnis; 
Das Unzulängliche, Hier wirds Ereignis;
Das Unbeschreibliche, Hier ists getan; 
Das Ewigweibliche 
Zieht uns hinan.

Everything is perishable 
Is merely an image. The unfillable: 
Here it becomes actuality. 
The indescribable: Here it is performed 
The eternal essence of womanhood 
Leads us aloft. 

— from Goethe’s Faust
