The 7th July was the 150th anniversary of Gustav Mahler’s birth. Countless festivals and concerts are being presented in his honour in this Mahler-Year, culminating in the 100th anniversary of his death on the 18th May 2011.
Over the past year we have asked the world’s most prominent conductors about their relationship to Mahler’s music. Pierre Boulez, Daniel Barenboim, Daniele Gatti, Zubin Mehta, Lorina Maazel and many more have told us of their very personal Mahler experiences. The results can be seen in our Mahler Blog, which now contains 20 exclusive video interviews. They give a vibrant impression of what Mahler can still mean to us today.
