Gustav Mahler on His Sickbed

Posted at 7:58 AM on May 17, 2011 by Rex Levang (1 Comments)

It's almost 100 years to the day (May 18, 1911) since Mahler's death.

To see how it was covered at the time, take a look at this May 17 issue of a Viennese newspaper, which treated Mahler's illness as front-page news.

Gustav Mahler's last words according to his wife, Alma, were "Mozart! Mozart!."
