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.
In the summer of 1893, Mahler wrote a song, entitled “St. Anthony of Padua’s Sermon to the Fish.” It turned out so well, he incorporated melodies from it into the third movement of his Second Symphony.
Starring James Lurie as the voice of Gustav Mahler, Laura Gragtmans as the voice of Natalie Bauer-Lechner, and Robert Fass as the voice of Siegfried Lipiner.
Guests include Kent Nagano (Hamburg State Opera and Philharmonic; Montreal Symphony Orchestra), Carter Brey (Principal Cello, New York Philharmonic), Matt Aucoin (Composer/Conductor), Marilyn McCoy (Columbia University, New York), and Joanna Neilly (Oxford University, England).
