    Exactly 90 years ago, on 28 November 1934, Blahoslavův dům in Brno’s Nová Street (now Lidická Street) saw the world première of the original three-movement version of Gustav Mahler’s Das klagende Lied (in Czech, translated by František Kožík). The performance involved – among others – the orchestra of the Brno radio station (that is, one of the two orchestras from which Filharmonie Brno would eventually be established), and Mahler’s nephew Alfred Rosé stood on the conductor’s podium. Thanks to a live broadcast, radio audiences could enjoy the concert too.

    Tonight’s performance of Das Klagende Lied commemorates the 90th anniversary of the world première of the original version in Brno and the 100th anniversary of the opening of what was then Czechoslovak Radio’s Brno studio. Mahler’s music will be heard alongside works by composers on whom the native of Kaliště near Humpolec left an indelible mark.
