Mahler goes square in Tel AvivOrchestras
In my 2010 book Why Mahler? I complained that there was no street in Israel named after Gustav Mahler. When I inquired at the time, I was informed that this was because he had converted to Christianity and had ruled himself out for commemmoration in the Jewish state.
That was then.
Now, my Israeli publisher Shmuel Rosner has discovered a square named for Mahler in the country’s fast-growing multicultural metropolis.
