Conduct an in-depth historical survey of the 11 symphonic works of Gustav Mahler. Trace the composer’s stylistic evolution during the four stages of his creative life, and clarify the main characteristics of these periods. We will focus on form, harmonic and melodic characteristics, and programmatic and emotional content. We will also compare and contrast many different conducting styles and interpretations.
