About the Mahler Effect

Gustav Mahler has touched untold lives through his works, communicating in his songs and symphonies life's joys and calamities and inspiring a deeply moving vision of the human condition. Mahler Foundation's mission is to channel this profound awareness - the "Mahler Effect" - into a force for positive change by creating, inspiring and supporting projects that draw upon, exemplify and further the transformative power of Gustav Mahler's legacy.

About Mahler Foundation

Mahler Foundation was founded by Marina Mahler, whose vision and generosity is a response to her life experience as Gustav Mahler's granddaughter. Mahler Foundation believes that art illuminates our essence and as such can serve as a vehicle for improving life, that awakening the imagination engenders compassion. Through our support of projects in the contemporary arts, environment and music education, we hope to foster community, refresh our awareness of nature as the inspiration for creativity and speak to humanity’s common purposes.
