Mahler on the Couch
This year's Drexel Gala (Sunday, Oct. 28 - details here - The Beat's apologies for transposing day/date in our Oct. 18 print editions), will feature a screening of the film Mahler on the Couch.
In case you're curious, the trailer can be viewed here. For some idea of why the relationship between Gustav Mahler, the magnificent German composer, and his wife, Alma, is worth retelling in a film, check out this and this.
It's a love story with musical and cultural overtones. The Gala marks the film's Ohio debut.
More information is available on the Drexel web site.
