Mahler Symphonies Series #8

http://www.russellsteinberg.com/mahlers-symphonies-series/

Gustav Mahler’s symphonies are among the most intoxicating and even addictive experiences in all classical music listening. In eight evenings together, we explore four of Mahler's symphonies from his early, middle, and late periods using piano examples, recordings, and your participation and discussion. We will follow Mahler’s compositional ideas and his ingenious use of the symphony orchestra, beginning with the first and second symphonies with their heroic narratives, then on to the mystical fourth symphony, the tragic sixth symphony, and great sublime farewell of the ninth symphony that ushers in our modern age. You will hear music more deeply than ever before! Curiosity and enthusiasm a must, previous musical knowledge not necessary to enjoy these evenings.
