Vatican newspaper pays tribute to Mahler

Catholic World News - July 08, 2010

Paying tribute to the late Romantic composer Gustav Mahler on the 150th anniversary of his birth, L’Osservatore Romano has reprinted a 1936 essay on Mahler by Bruno Walter, one of the leading conductors of the 20th century. Interestingly, both Mahler and Walter were Jewish converts to Catholicism, with Mahler converting at age 37-- reportedly in order to advance his career in Vienna-- and Walter converting towards the end of his life.
