"Who is Gustav Mahler today? A hundred years since his death, the capacity of his music to speak to the widest audience seems to be growing still. What bemused listeners in his own time are the very things that resonate with us so powerfully now - passionate avowal mixed with self-doubt, enduring hope in the face of utter negation, moments of timelessness in the headlong rush of the everyday. It's the contemporary tone of Mahler's music that remains eloquent - a century old yet intensely of our own time - the voice of one wrestling with what it is to live in the modern world." - Julian Johnston, Series Consultant
