Mahler and his Faith

ʻGod can only be comprehended as Love.ʼ - Gustav Mahler

Norman Lebrecht, prominent cultural commentator and author of Why Mahler? How One Man and Ten Symphonies Changed Our World presents a one-hour talk on Mahler’s faith and how it influenced his work. Mahler was raised in a traditional Jewish family, converted to Christianity to become head of the Vienna Opera, married a non-Jewish wife and was buried by a Catholic priest.

The talk is followed by a buffet of Austro-Hungarian pastries (macaroons, babka, mandelbread, lemon poppy sponge and rugelach) tea, coffee and hot chocolate ‘mit Schlag’ (whipped cream).

8% administrative fee applies to most telephone/online orders (excluding Schools Concerts). Postage is included in this fee. More information about booking fees.
