By Stephen Downes

The song of Gustav Mahler time and again engages with Romantic notions of redemption. this can be expressed in more than a few gestures and techniques, transferring among affirmative fulfilment and pessimistic negation. during this groundbreaking research, Stephen Downes explores the connection of this point of Mahler's track to the output of Benjamin Britten, Kurt Weill and Hans Werner Henze. Their preliminary admiration used to be particularly dissonant with the present Zeitgeist – Britten in Nineteen Thirties England, Weill in Twenties Germany and Henze in Nineteen Fifties Germany and Italy. Downes argues that Mahler's tune struck a profound chord with them due to the robust demeanour during which it increases and intensifies dystopian and utopian complexes and probes the query of fulfilment or redemption, an ambition appear in ambiguous tonal, temporal and formal techniques. Comparisons of the ways that this subject is evoked facilitate new interpretative insights into the tune of those 4 significant composers.
