The Gustav Mahler Blog by Universal Edition

Our Gustav Mahler blog was set up to document all information regarding performances, festivals, interviews, new editions, recordings and reviews up to and during the two Mahler anniversary years 2010 and 2011.

The blog is also the home of our exclusive collection of conductor’s interviews, which have since been published in Gustav Mahler: The Conductors’ Interviews, edited by Wolfgang Schaufler.

  • A Tribute to Mahler
    7.30pm – Canterbury Cathedral
    CITY OF BIRMINGHAM SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA CHAMBER PLAYERS
    Mezzo Soprano: Karen Cargill
    Tenor: Brian Cefai
    The leading members of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra unite to give a performance in celebration of Mahler’s works in their most intimate guise. Schoenberg’s unfinished transcription of ‘Das Lied von der Erde’ was only recently completed by Rainer Riehn. Tonight it is performed ‘conductor-less’ by CBSO Chamber Players together with two leading international singers: Karen Cargill from Scotland and Brian Cefai from Malta. We shall be reliving the evenings held by Verein für Musikalische Privataufführungen [the Society for Private Musical Performances], founded by Arnold Schoenberg in a concert which will also include one of Schoenberg’s most hauntingly beautiful works, Verklärte Nacht and Benno Sach’s arrangement of Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un Faune.

    Claude Debussy Prélude à l’après-midi d’un Faune (arr. Sachs)
    Arnold Schoenberg Verklärte Nacht
    Gustav Mahler Das Lied von der Erde (arr. Schoenberg/Riehn)

    A new film by Percy Adlon and Felix Adlon

    A genius composer, his wife, her lover…and Sigmund Freud

    Barbara Romaner as Alma
    Johannes Silberschneider as Gustav Mahler
    Karl Markovics as Sigmund Freud
    Friedrich Mücke as Walter Gropius
    Eva Mattes as Anna Moll
    Lena Stolze as Justine Mahler-Rosé
    and
    Nina Berten as Anna von Mildenburg

    Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra

    Gustav Mahler snatched Alma under the noses of Vienna’s artistic elite, but ten years of marriage and the death of one child have exacerbated the strains caused by the 19 year gap in their ages, and Mahler’s refusal to allow Alma to write music (“I need a wife, not a colleague”). While staying at a spa resort, Alma falls in love with Walter Gropius, five years her junior. Tormented, Mahler seeks advice from Sigmund Freud. The encounter of the two giants of music and psychoanalysis is bumpy, temperamental, and not without humor.
