Editorial Reviews

Mahler was a visionary composer whose work foreshadowed 20th-century Modernism. He was part of a group of renowned Austrian artists that included Klimt and Schoenberg. Mahler's story, from his native village in what is now the Czech Republic, over the Tyrolean Mountains and into Vienna s opera houses, is told through the photos of his family album. His granddaughter, Marina Mahler-Fistullari leafs through the photographs and tells the stories that lay behind them. Here, the full depth and breadth of the musician and his work are revealed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manages to cover some new ground December 25, 2012
There have been lots of Mahler docs. This is not the slickest nor does it have as polished production values as some of the others. However, despite the plethora of other fine Mahler films, they still found some new ground to cover and I found this film thoroughly enjoying. Some of the highlights for me were of the great Mahler scholar Henry-Louis de La Grange, taking us to many of pivotal locations that played a huge part in Mahler's life as well as sharing with us some of his Mahler artifacts such as Mahler last baton, which was given to him by Mahler's widow Mahler. Also interesting was the interview with Mahler's granddaughter who leafs through an old and dilapidated family album of priceless photos of Mahler during his summer composing months with his family. Great film.
Note: As has been noted by other reviewers the box incorrectly describes Marina as Mahler's daughter. I don't see why that's such a big deal and I hope that won't keep any Mahler fans from enjoying this fine film.

We see the hut near Vienna where he composed the songs that appear in his early symphonies, always accompanied with singing birds, followed by later symphonies from the fifth to the tenth (unfinished) and Das Lied Von Der Erde. Mahler was a visionary composer whose work foreshadowed 20th Century Modernism.
We see his manuscripts and the houses where he lived. The In the Footsteps series also includes Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Verdi, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Bizet, Puccini, Berlioz, Offenbach and Liszt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mahler's grand daughter not daughter. August 18, 2012
The annotation refers to Marina as Mahler's daughter. Marina is, in fact, the grand daughter of Mahler. She is the
child of Anna Mahler and the conductor Anatole Fistuolari.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mahler had no daughter named Marina July 29, 2012
Why does the description describe the producer as Mahler's daughter? Mahler had no daughter named Marina. His eldest daughter died at age five in 1907. His second daughter Anna died in the late 1980s.
