ʻBut it’s peculiar, as soon as I am in the midst of nature and by myself, everything that is base and trivial vanishes without trace. On such days nothing scares me; and this helps me again and again.ʼ - Gustav Mahler
Stephen Johnson, classical music writer, composer and broadcaster, and author of Mahler: His Life and Music, explores Mahler’s relationship with nature and the environment and how it affected the way he worked and the music he wrote.
The one-hour talk is followed by a picnic buffet with charcuterie, cheese and smoked fish platters, German onion tart, and a selection of salads (including Gurkensalat, Bavarian Radish Salad and Creamy German Potato Salad).
