M-LT 71311 - Mahler and Esotericism
Demigods, Nordic myth, Zarathustra, Faust, alchemy, and archetypes will all be a part of this look into Mahler’s esoteric thinking as it is reflected in his symphonies. Moving chronologically through the symphonies, we will focus particularly on Symphonies 2 through 4, 7, and 8, and will do traditional analyses of musical form and content as well as looking for narratives and extramusical meanings. Considering the symphonies in their contemporary cultural contexts, and within the framework of Mahler’s life and thought, will enable us to follow Mahler’s musical and philosophical evolution through his works.
