Fee: $2956-week series
The music of Gustav Mahler was not appreciated during his lifetime, causing him to remark "My time will come." He was right. Mahler's music and message have found an audience and continue to grow in popularity. Mahler was a philosopher/musician, struggling to understand the human soul and the meaning of life, death, and life after death. His music is a complex but wonderful language expressing the personal and the philosophical, often suggesting another state of mind and being. It's music that tells us about ourselves, our purpose, our possible future and our spirituality; music tailor-made for the 21st century. This series will serve as an introduction to Mahler's musical world.
