Be inspired by two soulful, uplifting masterworks.

Takemitsu’s Requiem and Mahler’s Symphony No.9 were triggered by loss and grief – Takemitsu for his mentor Fumio Hayasak, Mahler for his own daughter. But in the midst of death there is life: despite the solemn circumstances, these works have incredible spirit, even joy at times.
