The World of Mahler
“A symphony must be like the world. It must contain everything.” –Gustav Mahler
Hailed as one of the foremost Mahler conductors of his time, Benjamin Zander’s lifework takes us on a journey into the composer’s world. Since he began conducting Mahler’s symphonies in the 1970s, the musical journies created by the composer have become parallel to Zander’s own existence. Multiple recordings—with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Boston Philharmonic, and Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra—have earned Grammy nominations and praise from the world’s foremost musical minds.
