The life and work of Gustav Mahler (1860-1911) in a film biography by Franz Winter, shot at the original locations – with previously unpublished original material – based on Uri Caine's engagement as a composer with the music of Mahler. This film covers the composer’s youth, his times in Prague and Attersee, his engagements at the opera halls of Budapest and Vienna, his marriage to Alma Mahler, the death of their daughter Maria Anna, his period in New York, his work on the Tenth Symphony, and his death. Jazz pianist/composer Uri Caine brings an eclectic array of disciplines and influences to his music. His own Jewish heritage, his classical and jazz training, and his interest in electronics combine in ambitious hybrids that are often challenging but always inventive.
