Watershed Year

Alma Mahler     Fünf Lieder (1910)

Gustav Mahler      Symphony no. 9 (1909)

After Mahler’s fateful 1907 (including the death of his daughter) he embarked on his Ninth Symphony; this performance marks the 100th anniversary of its completion. It is an extraordinary work of deep and wild contrasts and is often read as a farewell to both Vienna and his wife, but ultimately it is a resignation to fate.  The concert opens with the first set of Alma Mahler’s Lieder that Gustav chose to publish in 1910 as a belated, and conciliatory, gesture after the breakdown of his marriage.
