Mahler Return to List of Composers
Gustav Mahler was born in Czech Republic in 1860. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1911. Gustav Mahler

Gustav Mahler was born in Kaliste in Bohemia. His father was a distillery owner. At the time of Mahler's birth, Bohemia and this village were a part of the Austro-Hungarian empire.   The house in which he was born remained as the village inn right up to 1990, when it became a museum and recital hall dedicated to Mahler. Today it is in the Czech republic.  Kaliste is between Brno and Prague, the nearest town being Jihlava.

Mahler was a pupil of Bruckner in Vienna, and he was also influenced by Wagner.   He was a world-renowned and much-travelled conductor.  

His music links the 20th century with the romantic traditions of the 19th century. His style may be described as a late German romantic. He wrote 9 symphonies for a very large orchestra, several of these involving the human voice as well.
