Scoop from the book tour: Syracuse to erect Mahler memorialmain
It’s 100 years next month since Gustav Mahler swung upstate with the New York Philharmonic and the city of Syracuse is planning to mark the day with Why Mahler? on the radio and a new stone bench with Mahler’s name on in Clinton Square. The donor is Hamilton Armstrong.
Sadly, the Syracuse Symphony has cancelled a performance of Mahler’s fifth symphony for lack of funds.
