Gustav Mahler at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris

The new Gustav Mahler exhibition at the Musée d’Orsay opened this week in Paris.

The exhibition shows a fascinating collection of material from the archives of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna and the Médiathèque Musicale Mahler in Paris. Many of the objects are on display for the first time ever.

The centrepiece of the exhibition is a facsimile of the complete manuscript score of the 4th Symphony. As the music plays from loudspeakers (Jascha Horenstein’s 1970 recording with the London Symphony Orchestra) lights illuminate the relevant page in the score.

Curator Pierre Korzilius spoke to Universal Edition about the exhibition.

The exhibition is on until 29 May 2011.

Michael Tilson Thomas on Gustav Mahler

“Jump! Cut! Bang!”

Do you remember the first time you heard Mahler’s music?

Tilson Thomas: I remember very clearly the moment when Mahler’s music reached out and grabbed me; I was 13 years old. I was waiting at the house of my parents’ friends for some reason or another; they were very busy people and they said, “Would you like to listen to some music? For example, do you know Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde?” ”“ which of course I didn’t.

And they said, “Why don’t you listen to the last movement ”“ it’s about 20 minutes long and your parents should be here by then.” And they put on this section, and really I divide my life between before I heard that recording ”“ which was Ferrier and Walter ”“ and after I heard it. The music made a stunning impression on me.
