Gustav Mahler (July 7, 1860–May 18, 1911), former music director of the New York Philharmonic, died 100 years ago today. During the Orchestra’s EUROPE / SPRING 2011 tour, led by Music Director Alan Gilbert, Archivist/Historian Barbara Haws, Chairman Gary W. Parr, Philharmonic Patrons, and musicians traveled to Grinzing Cemetery in Vienna, to lay a wreath on the composer’s grave in commemoration of the centennial. Mahler conducted the final concert of his life with the Philharmonic just a few months prior to his death.
