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.

Collaborative piano faculty Cameron Stowe and Tanya Blaich gather NEC singers and pianists for a Liederabend devoted to songs by Gustav Mahler, Alma Mahler, Richard Strauss, Arnold Schoenberg and Alexander Zemlinsky.
