Michael Tilson Thomas does a thoroughly credible and engaging job of introducing the diverse musical and cultural influences that went into the early music of Gustav Mahler with special focus on his first symphony. He becomes our travel guide to the places where Mahler grew up, the lives of his parents, and the places he would visit to discover sources of inspiration. As someone who has listened to his first symphony for well over 45 years, even I learned a fair amount about this work. Strongly recommended.
