Welcome to My Mahler!
Over 2010/11, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the Birmingham International Season present Birmingham's first ever Mahler cycle - marking the 100th anniversary of Mahler's death, and 150 years since his birth. The Birmingham Mahler Cycle features great orchestras and great conductors - and of course, some of the most incredible music ever written.
Mahler's music is unrivalled in the powerful emotional reactions it inspires. So, as we go on an exhilarating journey through this mind-blowing musical world, we want to hear your thoughts, feelings and reactions. Whether he moves you to tears, sends a shiver down your spine, or leaves you with a deep sense of peace, your response is sure to be as individual as you are - your Mahler.
