Gustav Mahler

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this card!!!!
This is Gustav Mahler...and Austrian composer and conductor (7 July 1860 – 18 May 1911). He was best known during his own lifetime as one of the leading orchestral and operatic conductors of the day. He has since come to be acknowledged as among the most important late Romantic/early Modernist composers, although his music was never completely accepted by the musical establishment of Vienna  while he was still alive. Mahler composed primarily symphonies and songs; however, his approach to genre often blurred the lines between orchestral Lied, symphony and symphonic poem. On this photo here, Gustav is 49 years old....
Unfortunately, im not familiar with Mahler's work, so i dont know what is it that i may recommend you....if YOU have something to suggest, im open for it...
well, i really liked this piece in particular, so i thought sharing it with you...and for some reason, i have a feeling i had heard it somewhere before...wasnt it on Tom and Jerry?
