It is with these words that the Austrian Theatre Museum has titled its new exhibition on the life and music of Gustav Mahler, celebrating his 150th birthday. The exhibition was curated by Reinhold Kubik und Thomas Trabitsch, in cooperation with Universal Edition.
Visitors to the exhibition can view all 15 video interviews with conductors which were made for this blog.
The exhibition runs until 3 October 2010.

The Stockholm Konserthuset’s Mahler series is in full swing, presenting all of Mahler’s orchestral works in just 12 days. Eight orchestras join together to present this tightly packed presentation of Mahler’s music.
The series is accompanied by a large exhibition and a 200 page programme book, created together with Henry-Louis de La Grange.
Swedish Radio is recording all the symphonies, some of which will be broadcast live.
