Notes & Reviews:

From the sounds outside his bedroom window - a kind of sonic goulash of military marches, ethnic dance bands, church bells and nature itself - Gustav Mahler created an entire universe of emotion in music. In an astonishingly productive twenty-five years, he fashioned ten symphonies and 45 songs of cosmic scale, great beauty and jarring emotional twists and turns. And he did it all in the brief moments he could spare from his day job as one of Europe's preeminent conductors. On Gustav Mahler: Origins and Legacy, the latest release in the PBS Keeping Score series, Michael Tilson Thomas returns to the provincial Austro-Hungarian city of Mahler's childhood and bears witness to his grand achievements, great sorrows and daring musical explorations into the depths of the human soul. Join MTT and the San Francisco Symphony as they trace Mahler's rise as a young conductor, his career-crowning appointments in Vienna and New York, his turbulent marriage and the sudden, tragic death of his daughter - and show how his stormy inner life inspired new and ever-more heartbreaking heights of creativity. SFS Media's two-disc set includes the documentary accompanied by a second disc with concert performances by the San Francisco Symphony including the first symphony, selected movements of the fifth, seventh and ninth symphonies and the complete Songs of a Wayfarer with baritone Thomas Hampson.

Works:
Mahler: Symphonies 1, 5, 7 & 9: Excerpt(s); Songs of a Wayfarer

“Each [of the “Keeping Score” programs] can serve as an introduction to serious music for students of all ages, and the concert segments can stand alone as superb performances of these works; each new program also serves to further enhance the reputation of orchestra and conductor as among the best, if not the best, that America has to offer.” -Fanfare Magazine

This disc, produced by BluFocus, uses the most current programming technology. Unfortunately, some of the disc’s cutting-edge features and navigation systems rely on this new technology and are incompatible with some Blu-ray disc players.

These issues can sometimes be resolved by performing a firmware update (this process, if available, will be explained in the specific player’s manual). Updating the firmware brings the disc player’s operating system to the most current version.
