Of Love, Death, and Beyond: Exploring Mahler's Resurrection SymphonyDecember 20, 2011
“What is this life—and this death?” Gustav Mahler famously asked when composing his second symphony.

Viewers are treated to beautifully produced historical reenactments as well as interviews with many of the world’s most respected Mahler scholars and biographers, including Henry-Louis de La Grange, Donald Mitchell, Morten Solvik, and others.
