DERYCK COOKE talks about
Mahler's intellectual and musical position in relation to his own times
The end of the nineteenth century was the time when the humble man's hope and faith in old gods was being disturbed by those feelings of inadequacy which have led to the humanist view of dynamic progress. What echoes of these conflicts can be heard in Mahler's music, and what resolution comes from Goethe, from whom the title of this talk is taken?
