Airs Saturday, October 13, 2918, at 3 p.m. "To write a symphony is, for me, to construct a world," said Mahler. Hear unique historical comment and quotes from biographers, authors, conductors, and Mahler himself; plus, selections from his powerful symphonies, as we explore the art, agony, and achievement of this "man of genius," as Freud called him. Gustav Mahler died on May 18th 1911 at the age of 50.
