The soul of Gustav Mahler comes to life in this 2011 documentary through places and objects: his conductor’s podium, the summer home where he composed, his glasses, baton, musical score, and manuscripts. This acclaimed film cuts through the romantic mythology of an icon to create a complex portrait of the man himself, featuring interviews with biographer Henry-Louis de la Grange, baritone Thomas Hampson, and conductors Claudio Abbado, Leonard Bernstein, Pierre Boulez, and Daniel Harding.
