Austrian Gustav Mahler Society

The society has dedicated itself to the pieces and writings of Gustav Mahler and his contemporaries to demonstrate the interaction of compositional opposites of the late romantic and the modern period. The AGMS patronates and organizes concerts and lectures on these topics, has video and audio productions and is hosting the WoertherSee Classics Festival since 2002 in which the intercultural patronship of the artists from all around the Alpe-Adria-region and fostering the whole musical tradition from middle Europe is one of the main aspects.
