It took decades for his community to recognize his influence; he is now regarded as a pioneer of 20-century composition techniques, particularly progressive tonality. In 1900, just after he had finished his Fourth Symphony, Mahler wrote about how the work had taken shape. Mahler does appear to have written something that implies sunshine and that is certainly what you get from Ludwig.
