In 1860, a man was born named Gustav Mahler. Born in Vienna, Mahler grew to be the most famous conductor of his time, writing 9 symphonies, and 42 songs. His mentor a church organist in Vienna, Anton Bruckner, showed Gustav ways to write in an original or unorthodox fashion. Much of the method can merely be speculation. We do know, however, that the second Mahler symphony and those to follow, were unlike any symphony that had been heard. This brought much abuse upon Mahler, and only in the middle of the century, after he died in 1911, did he receive his recognition as a musical genius. This decorative piano is found in the Mozart Museum, Salzburg, Austria. [AW] {NR}
