Splendid Isolation III, a romantic duet set to Mahler's Adagietto from his 5th Symphony, is the third version of the original piece entitled Splendid Isolation. The original inspiration for this creation came from the life of Gustav Mahler and his wife Alma. In their story, Mahler asked Alma to give up her career as a composer before he would marry her.
