MAHLER - AFFAIRS OF THE HEART:
Presented by Michael Trimble and Iain Farrington at the piano.

Professor Michael Trimble makes his first visit to GMS to explore the physical and emotional manifestations of Mahler’s heart and how they might have influenced his compositions.  His interest in opera has led to studies of aspects of the life and works of Richard Wagner with a special interest in his medical problems. His papers on The Mystery of Wotan’s Eye, and on Wagner’s Eyes have been published in The Wagner Journal, and he is currently writing a book with other colleagues on Sudden Death in Opera. His current research on emotional responses to music will no doubt feature in this evening’s fascinating talk
Michael is a Specialist in Behavioural Neurology and Neuropsychiatry, Emeritus Professor and Consultant Physician at the Department of Psychological Medicine at the National Hospital, Queen’s Square, London and the author of many books.
 Iain is a pianist, composer and arranger and a frequent broadcaster on BBC Radio 3. He has performed in major venues worldwide and has arranged many works in a variety of musical styles.

Symphonic Studies: Mahler’s Fifth Symphony

In his annual progression of study days that focus on Mahler’s symphonies, Gavin Plumley, the Vice President of the Gustav Mahler Society UK, will analyse Symphony No. 5.


Gavin’s journey began in 2015 and has been greatly appreciated by GMS members and friends, as we deepen our understanding and gain new insights into these major works – see The Wayfarer, July and October 2019 where Symphony No. 4 is reviewed. Gavin’s many roles include broadcasting, lecturing and writing. He is a distinguished Austrophile, preparing programme notes for the Salzburg Festival and works regularly for festivals, orchestras, concert halls and opera houses throughout the world.
