Magnificent Gustav Mahler

Mahler was born in Kališt, Bohemia in 1860 and died in Vienna in 1911. His piano lessons began at age six and he entered the Vienna Conservatory in 1875. His teachers included Franz Krenn (composition) and R. Fuchs (harmony).

Milestones in Mahler’s life included being appointed to the following positions: conductor of the Hamburg Opera (1891), director of the Vienna Court Opera (1897) and conductor of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra (1909).

Mahler’s greatness as a conductor was immediately appreciated. However, his skills as a composer took a bit of time to be fully recognized. His composing style can be seen in its fullest in his symphonic works. Often unconventional in form, his huge emotional range, masterful orchestration and intriguing polyphony are all characteristics of his appealing style.

An Amazing Mahler Fact

Mahler’s ninth symphony was extremely chromatic, perhaps foreshadowing elements in Schoenberg’s musical style.
