Mahler Foundation

Gustav Mahler has touched untold lives through his music and writings, communicating the joys and calamities of simply being alive and inspiring a deeply moving vision of the human condition. Many of us have somehow been transformed by this experience.

The mission of Mahler Foundation is to channel profound awareness in the spirit of Gustav Mahler’s legacy into a force for positive change in our trying times.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, Advisory Members and Honorary Members, and performing organizations worldwide, I invite you to join us and learn more about our projects.
