Donald Macleod explores Mahler's life in New York City, a hustling and bustling metropolis that even presented him with women's suffrage marches outside his hotel apartment window. Despite a successful second season conducting the New York Philharmonic, misfortune struck again when Mahler discovered his wife was conducting an affair with the young German architect Walter Gropius.
