Mahler and Liszt: March 2011

Mahler and Liszt: March 2011

Placing composers in the context of their contemporaries often helps us to understand their music, and sometimes to trace how new compositional ideas spread. In the second of this Mahler Anniversary Season's pre-concert talks, Surrey University Lecturer Jeremy Barham looks at Mahler's relationship with the music of Franz Liszt. Starting with the music by Liszt that we know Mahler heard or conducted, and what Mahler wrote about him, Barham then explores some of the interesting musical links between the composers.
