Mahler’s New York: A Digital Festival

April 16–30, 2020

Welcome, Willkommen, to Mahler’s New York, a celebration of the composer / conductor and erstwhile New Yorker / Philharmonic Music Director (1909–11). The digital festival took place over the course of two weeks in April 2020 (we dropped new content every day), but we invite you to continue exploring Mahler’s life and music through this page and beyond.

We will regale you with stories, and together we will revel in Mahler’s music.
We will amuse you with musical telegrams, and together we will muse about being alive.
We will share recipes and footage, and we want to see and hear from you.

But most of all, in this period of global isolation and crisis, we hope you will take comfort and inspiration in Mahler’s music and musings.

“And now, in this solemn and deeply stirring moment, when the confusion and distractions of everyday life are lifted like a hood from our eyes, a voice of awe-inspiring solemnity chills our heart, a voice that, blinded by the mirage of everyday life, we usually ignore: ‘What next?’ it says. ‘What is life and what is death? Will we live on eternally? Is it all an empty dream or do our life and death have a meaning?’ And we must answer this question, if we are to go on living.”
— Mahler, on his Symphony No. 2, Resurrection
