Zubin Mehta on Gustav Mahler

“I would love to ask him a thousand questions”

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

Mehta: That was in Bombay. It was a recording of the 4th, conducted by Bruno Walter, and the singer was Désirée von Halban. As a youngster, perhaps this was a good start, because the 4th looks at the world through the eyes of a child. I was not a child, I was a teenager, but the music was immediately accessible.
