Afternoon on 3 - Mahler - Mahler and Vienna - Part 2
Afternoon on 3 continues its celebration of Mahler's early career in Vienna. There's music to reflect Mahler's Bohemian background by Dvorak and Smetana, and also by Rott, a fellow student at the Vienna Conservatory. His job as director of the Vienna Court Opera allowed him to indulge in the music of the opera composers he admired, particularly Mozart and Wagner. Plus a chance to hear Mahler himself in a piano roll recording of part of his Symphony no.5.
