Iranian House of Artists is planning to pay tribute to late-Romantic Austrian composer Gustav Mahler by holding a ceremony at his death anniversary.
A number of prominent Iranian composers and musicians will attend the 101th death anniversary ceremony that is slated to be held in Jalil Shahnazi Hall in the capital city of Tehran on May 17, 2012.
As a part of the commemoration program, several remarkable works of Mahler are scheduled to be reviewed by the master artists.
Organized by Iran's house of artists in collaboration with Tehran’s school, the event is also programmed to screen a short film on Mahler’s selected performances.
Mahler (1860 -1911) was a composer who acted as a bridge between the 19th century Austro-German tradition and the modernism of the early 20th century.
He composed in the media of song and symphony with creating a close and complex interrelationship between the two. Songs of a Wayfarer and Symphony No. 1 are among his remarkable works.
