From the sound outside his bedroom window - a kind of sonic goulash of military marches, ethnic dance bands, church bells, ritual prayer, and nature itself, Gustav Mahler created an entire universe of emotion in music. In an astonishingly productive twenty-five years, he fashioned ten symphonies and 45 songs of cosmic scale, great beauty, and jarring emotional twists and turns. And he did it all in the brief moments he could spare from his day jobs as one of Europe's preeminent conductors.

In Gustav Mahler: Origins and Legacy, Michael Tilson Thomas returns to the provincial Austro-Hungarian city of Mahler's childhood, and bears witness to his grand achievements, great sorrow, and daring musical explorations into the dephths of the human sould. Join MTT and the San Francisco Symphony as they trace Mahler's rise as a young conductor, and show how his stormy inner life inspired new and ever-more heartbreaking heights of creativity.
