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.
For his Second Symphony, Mahler created a second movement he described as a memory, “a ray of sunlight, pure and cloudless, out of the hero’s life.” The music is bittersweet.
Starring James Lurie as the voice of Gustav Mahler.
Guests include Michael Tilson Thomas (New World Symphony; San Francisco Symphony; London Symphony Orchestra), Carter Brey (Principal Cello, New York Philharmonic), Matthew Aucoin (Composer/Conductor), D.D. Jackson (Jazz Pianist/Composer), and Marilyn McCoy (Columbia University, New York).
