New York Philharmonic Performance History

The New York Philharmonic (Mahler’s orchestra from 1909-1911) has launched an online database of their whole performance history.

Use the search to find the first concert Mahler gave at the Philharmonic (Sunday 29 November 1908, 3pm!) and see even the works performed in each concert.

On the Philharmonic’s Mahler Symphonies page you can also view their historic score of Mahler’s 1st Symphony (takes a while to load, but it’s worth it).
