The Washington Post

Link: Mahler, 100 years later

This weekend in the Washington Post, I offer a field guide to Gustav Mahler in honor of his anniversary. Take note of the listings of local Mahler events: this weekend you can hear Mahler’s 1st in Alexandria; Mahler’s 2nd in Fairfax, or see Visconti’s “Death in Venice” (with Mahler’s music as soundtrack) at the National Gallery.

Also: A new and much-touted CD shows Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy reclaiming Celtic music in a serious contemporary idiom, alongside a song cycle written for Dawn Upshaw.

Anne Midgette came to the Washington Post in 2008, when she consolidated her various cultural interests under the single title of chief classical music critic. She blogs at The Classical Beat.
