It’s our season finale! After a brief break to prepare, we are back with our big closer for the season where we outline and discuss a musical lineage from Mahler to the modern day conductor. Whether from an analytical view or a deep emotional connection, Mahler has meant something to the music world and continues to be a big presence. From Boulanger to Copland to Bernstein to Alsop, how has Mahler been passed down? What is it that makes Mahler have this lasting power? These and other big takeaways lay in wait for you on our final episode of Tea Time With Mahler!

We have the great honor of having a guest on our pod today! We are joined by Katie, a budding musicologist currently studying at the University of Arizona. Today, Zach, Caroline, and Katie discuss society’s reception and reaction to Mahler both during his time and long after. There is discussion of Mahler’s music, conducting style, and public perception.Also, in case you want to read through it, the article Caroline refers to is “Ein hypermoderner Dirigent”: Mahler and Anti-Semitism in “Fin-de-siècle” Vienna by K. M. Knittel. Her apologies for not mentioning it in the pod. It’s Friday and brain function was running low.Content Warning: This podcast does contain discussion of racism and anti-semitic quotes and content.

On this week’s episode of ‘Tea Time With Mahler’ Zach and Caroline continue their discussion of ‘interpretation’ with their own interpretation of Symphony №3. They dive into Mahler’s use of nature throughout the symphony, but especially so in movements 1 and 3. They discuss the anthropomorphic treatment of nature through Mahler’s perspective both in a personal sense and for humanity as a whole. We hope you enjoy episode 2!
