The members of the orchestra, chorus and soloists totaled more than 1,000 people, thus giving rise to the name “Symphony of a Thousend”. Just prior to this trip to Munich, on 25-08-1910, Mahler went to Leiden in The Netherlands, to consult with Sigmund Freud (1856-1939). According to Freud “The necessity for the visit arose for him from his wife’s resentment of the withdrawal of his libido from her. In highly interesting expeditions through his life history, we discovered his personal conditions for love, especially his Holy Mary complex (mother fixation). I had plenty of opportunity to admire the capability for psychological understanding by this man of genius’.
