Gustav Mahler

Gustav Mahler (18601911) - an Austrian classical composer and conductor. Gustav Mahler is one of the greatest composers of symphonies in the world for all time. He wrote only symphonies and songs. P. Tchaikovsky wrote in his letter in 1892 (from Hamburg) about Mahler: "By the way, the conductor here is not some second-rate fellow, but positively a genius, and he is burning with eagerness to conduct the first performance [of Onegin]. Yesterday I heard him conduct an astonishing performance of Tannhauser. The singers, the orchestra, Pollini, the stage directors, the conductor (his name is Mahler) are all in love with Yevgeny Onegin"
