Mahler’s Symphonien in the score and orchestra library
„… my time will come!“
Around 130 years ago, Gustav Mahler started his career in Leipzig as one of the most important conductors of his time and as one of the greatest symphonists ever. At the same time, Breitkopf & Härtel began to build up its score and orchestra library. Despite Mahler’s efforts to have his works published by Breitkopf & Härtel, a cooperation did not come into being then. All the more reason why we are pleased to announce one of our most ambitious projects in the year of our 300th anniversary: the publication of all Gustav Mahler’s symphonies.
