Gustav Mahler (1860-1911)
'A symphony must be like the world,’ Gustav Mahler said. ‘It must embrace everything.’ And he turned that far reaching thought into sound.
Gustav Mahler’s cathartic music seems to express the most extreme human emotions and reaches minds and hearts of all ages, nations and religions. Because of this, his music continues to live in the present. Mahler is a true composer of the 20th and 21st century. With Mahler’s radical thinking and his profound love of nature, we look to the young, to the future, to take these transformative impulses even further.

"But now imagine such a large work in which the whole world is actually reflected - one is, so to speak, oneself merely an instrument upon which the universe plays" - Gustav Mahler (1860-1911)
