Mahler Foundation was founded by Marina Mahler, whose vision and generosity is a response to her life experience as Gustav Mahler's granddaughter.

Mahler famously said that "But now imagine such a large work in which the whole world is actually reflected – one is, so to speak, oneself merely an instrument upon which the universe plays."The instrument upon which the universe plays today is you. Please join us.
