100th Anniversary of Gustav Mahler's Death

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of Gustav Mahler's death. Celeste Headlee remembers the impressive works of the world famous composer that still resonate today. The late Romantic Austrian-Bohemian composer, who at the end of his life directed the New York Philharmonic, was famous for an obsession with composing symphonies.

The New York Philharmonic is on tour now, and laid a wreath on Mahler's grave when they were in Vienna a couple of days ago. A thoughtful gesture, in my opinion. Here is a link to their tour page: http://nyphil.org/wp/?cat=91

I am very happy you are back Celeste, but it is John, not Nelson Rockefeller.
