You forgot his birthday?


  • Rob says:

    No Mahler scheduled on BBC Radio 3 on 7/7. What sort of classical music station is that?

    • Michael Endres says:

      Good question…I guess an “all inclusive” one.
      The good old Bayerische Rundfunk in Munich had a tel. nr. on offer where listeners could ask for their favorite Mahler work to be played…

  • NYMike says:

    Much Mahler today on NY’s WQXR.

  • J Barcelo says:

    I never forget Mahler’s birthday. Every year I spend the whole day listening to a wide selection of his music. This year it’s symphonies 1, 3, 4, 7, 9 with Ozawa and Boston, Das Lied with Paul Kletzki. Wonderful way to spend a hot summer day. Happy Birthday!

  • David Goodman says:

    Thank you!

  • E says:

    Beautiful tribute, beautiful woman, beautiful gown…like a
    summer garden, with butterflies.

  • Wurm says:

    Can’t say I remembered this insignificant note scribbler yesterday or any other day. It’s all fluff, hyperbole, angst and me, me , me. What on earth is the point of it all? Give me Bruckner or Brahms any day – they are composers worthy of the title.

  • HugoPreuss says:

    I just went back to March 21 on this site. No one mentions Bach’s birthday. Absolutely nothing. Is he really much less important than Mahler??

  • Springbeg says:

    Glorious, and a fitting tribute to both Mahler and Ms Norman

  • Edgar Self says:

    His day has come. Happy 161st!
