Gustav Mahler (1860-1911) -- "Ich weiß für mich, daß ich, solang ich mein Erlebnis in Worten zusammenfassen kann, gewiß keine Musik hierüber machen würde." // "If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music."

Gustav Mahler July 1860 – 18 May was a late-Romantic Austrian composer and one of the leading conductors of his generation. Truly one of my favorite Classical composers. I hope you enjoy them---especially Symphony
