      Gustav Mahler Centenary Conference

      �Mahler: Contemporary of the Past?�

      Department of Music and Sound Recording, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, July 7-9, 2011

      This conference takes the opportunity in Mahler�s centenary year to advance the scholarly understanding of his work through fresh investigation and re-investigation of cultural, historical, analytical and performance issues relating to the composer.

      Particular emphasis is placed on ideas of nostalgia and historicism in Mahler�s output, and alongside these are themed sessions that address countervailing notions of modernity, as well as aesthetic theory, structuring processes, the intermedial, and Mahler�s performance and compositional legacy. The conference includes a composer roundtable discussion featuring David Matthews, Anthony Payne, and Edward Gregson.

      Accompanying the conference are five concerts (including performances by Uri Caine, and the Endymion Ensemble, and a recital using Mahler�s 1836 Graf piano at Hatchlands, Clandon), an art exhibition, a sound installation, and video material relating to Mahler�s composing locations and a recent film by Beate Thalberg (ORF, Vienna).
