"Only when I experience something do I compose, and only when composing do I experience anything.".
With the invaluable help of the archives department of the Musikverein in Vienna and the Mahler media library in Paris, we take a new look at Mahler as conductor and opera director. With a parallel study of his relationship with literature and nature, key sources for his work, the exhibition aims to put forward a more complete view of Mahler's life and his creative process.
