From the Archives - Mahler's 'Titan'

Composer Gustav Mahler.
A. Dupont
Composer Gustav Mahler.

Gustav Mahler’s first symphony is now one of his most popular works, but at its premiere he was flogged by critics for the symphony’s unconventional style. This thrilling ode to nature remains a work of sheer genius and shows how ahead of his time he was.
