Mahler: Love and Death

Our celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Mahler's birth continue with a recent Prom by a group that takes his name - the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra - performing his music.

With Louise Fryer.
Aon3 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Gustav Mahler with an occasional series of 5 weeks celebrating various facets of his life and work.
