  • Keeping Score - Mahler Legacy

    Gustav Mahler

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 1 hr 50 min

    In an astonishingly productive twenty-five years, Gustav Mahler created an entire universe of emotion in music. In his 45 songs and ten symphonies, he looks into the depths of the human soul, explores the fragile nature of beauty, and tells us to hold on to wonder in spite of life’s sorrow. In this episode of Keeping Score, Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony demonstrates Mahler’s grand achievements and great sorrows. The show 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, Michael Tilson Thomas explains why Mahler has so profoundly affected his own life. Shot on location in the Czech Republic, Austria, New York, and in performance in San Francisco's Davies Symphony Hall.
