Summary
This overview of the life and work of Gustav Mahler from the Famous Composers series opens by introducing the composer's parents and the political and social landscape of nineteenth century Bohemia. The film follows the young Mahler's musical education at the Vienna Conservatory and his general education, both supported by his father, Bernard Mahler. By the age of 20, Mahler secured steady work as a conductor and gained great success conducting operas. It was some time before conducting gave way to his own composing, which consisted of symphonies instead of operas. The film traces Mahler's appointments in Vienna and New York and his often difficult personal life through his death in 1911.
