Mahler on the Couch



OPENING NIGHT
Mahler on the Couch
Percy Adlon & Felix Adlon | Austria/Germany | 2010 | 97mm
New York Premiere
Percy Adlon, acclaimed director of Bagdad Café, together with his son Felix, bring us this witty examination of the great composer Gustav Mahler’s relationship with his tempestuous wife, Alma. Chafing under her agreement to give up her own musical ambitions, Alma seeks passion in the arms of the young, dashing architect Walter Gropius. The film depicts Mahler’s consultations with Sigmund Freud on matters of creativity and passion. Moving, funny, and filled with Mahler’s sublime music conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen, Mahler on the Couch is a sensory feast based on an actual encounter between Mahler and Freud.
Percy Adlon, director, and Eleonore Adlon, producer, will be in attendance.
