He's more than a bunch of symphonies and songs. Even those are not what you think. And although the music stopped with his death in 1911—100 years later, his time is now. During four months of concerts, jam sessions, conversation, and film, free your mind about what Mahler really means.

David Loebel, Associate Conductor of Orchestras, and the NEC Philharmonia focus on "1909 and the Future of Symphonic Music." Loebel asks us to ponder what Mahler might have written had he lived beyond his 51 years. He sees glimpses of the future of music in the great stacked tone clusters of the fragmentary Symphony No. 10, inclinations that might connect the dots to Schoenberg. Strauss, four years younger than Mahler but who outlived him by nearly 30 years, followed another path.
