The Embrace Everything podcast series is an exploration and celebration of the music of Gustav Mahler. Throughout his life, Mahler insisted that music had to, literally, embrace everything. This makes his compositions unusually rich in what they offer both audience and musicians. Each season explores a different Mahler symphony and includes interviews with leading conductors, music scholars and musicians. Additionally, Mahler’s own words and those of his contemporaries are read by actors.
Mahler’s Second Symphony begins with the funeral for the hero of his First Symphony. The dramatic music rages with sorrow and anger...but also hope, for life after death.
Starring James Lurie as the voice of Gustav Mahler.
Guests include Kent Nagano (Hamburg State Opera and Philharmonic), Carter Brey (Principal Cello, New York Philharmonic), Austin Howle (Principal Tuba, Montreal Symphony Orchestra), Matthew McDonald (Principal Bass, Berlin Philharmonic), Michael Sachs (Principal Trumpet, Cleveland Orchestra), Caroline Kita (Washington University in St. Louis), Marilyn McCoy (Columbia University, New York), and Joanna Neilly (Oxford University, England).
