Mahler's Origins: A "Sonic Goulash"

Mahler's Origins: A "Sonic Goulash"

All of Mahler’s music reflects the world of sounds that enveloped him as a child growing up in Iglau in Moravia, now Jihlava in the Czech Republic. A sizable mining town halfway between Vienna and Prague, Iglau housed army garrissons from far-flung parts of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The family lived over a tavern run by Gustav’s father Bernard.

Common Threads

“Impressions of his youth run like a scarlet thread throughout his work.”

—Mahler’s friend, musicologist Guido Adler

On this website you can follow the way Mahler’s childhood memories — sounds of the countryside, the parade ground, the church, the tavern, and the synagogue — create common threads that run through all of his songs and symphonies.

 

“I have eaten and drunk, I have been awake and I have slept, I have wept and laughed, I have stood on mountains, where the breath of God bloweth where it listeth, I have been on the heath, and the tinkling of cow-bells has lulled me into dreams.”
