“My music is always the voice of nature sounding in tone…”

“The military band was the passion of my childhood.”

“O believe, my heart, O believe”

“The Bohemian music of my childhood home has found its way into many of my compositions.”

“Always an intruder, never welcomed....”

“Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire.” 

By Gustav Mahler (1860-1911).
