Keeping Score: A Mahler Journey

Keeping Score: A Mahler Journey

Keeping Score: Mahler in Part I, “Origins,” follows renowned music director Michael Tilson Thomas as he journeys to rural Bohemia to rediscover the inspirations of Gustav Mahler’s music, and traces his life through the premiere of his first symphony in 1888.

In Part II, “Legacy,” Michael Thomas examines Gustav Mahler’s creative growth, from the 1890s to his death in 1911, including his symphonies, the Ruckert songs, and Das Lied von der Erde. This two-part program charts Mahler’s mercurial career as a conductor, from the Vienna Opera to Carnegie Hall in New York, as well as his tempestuous relationship with his wife Alma. At Mahler’s simple grave in a Grinzing cemetery, Thomas explains why Mahler has so profoundly affected his own life.

Keeping Score: Mahler Part One airs Sunday, July 3rd at 1 p.m. and Part Two airs the following Sunday on July 10th at 1 p.m.
