Notes and Editorial Reviews

"You have to train like an athlete to play Mahler," says a young violinist. "But when it comes together, it is magic." The highlight of this DVD is a performance of Gustav Mahler's Fifth Symphony played by students of McGill University's Music School orchestra. It serves as a tribute to the Austrian composer (1860-1911) who as a young man wrote this to a friend: "Now I am lost to the world, but in fifty years they will play my symphonies as they now play Beethoven."

Other features of the DVD include:
The English documentary McGill, Mahler & Montreal (56 min)
The French version of the documentary, Mahler McGill Montreal (54 min)
