WQXR celebrates Gustav Mahler’s 150th birthday with a special, online-only stream. Each day for a week, dive deep into Mahler’s repertoire and discover the creative mind behind some of the twentieth century’s most significant works.
Though Mahler's compositions were often considered impenetrable and challenging in his time, they have become highly regarded and admired in ours.
Mahler expert and Mad About Music host Gilbert Kaplan created an annotated bibliography of Mahler books that provide the best insight into his life and works.
Our special stream kicks off with three days of the Mahler symphonies, aired in sequence without interruption and performed by a range of top conductors and orchestras.
Click on the "Special Program" tab on the WQXR online player, which is located in the upper right corner of each page of the site.
Listen each day from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Wednesday, July 7 through Wednesday, July 14.
