Universal Edition - Gustav Mahler 2010 2011


Gustav Mahler 2010 / 2011 – the handbook for concert programming

In preparation for the two Mahler memorial years 2010 (150th birthday) and 2011 (100th anniversary of death), Universal Edition has produced a brochure which gives an overview of the works of Gustav (and Alma) Mahler, and also draws attention to several interesting arrangements, some the work of famous hands. In addition, the brochure also presents works by other composers which make direct or indirect reference to Mahler.
