Summary Gustav Mahler's turbulent loves are expressed through his music. His settings of poems by Friedrich Rückert explore themes of love, nature, and otherworldliness. Mahler was haunted throughout his life by the premonition of his own death. The first movement of his 2nd Symphony draws stark contrasts between the composer's premonition of doom and his vision of life. Modern parallels can be found in 'Adieu' by Bernard Rands and 'Of Paradise and Light' by his wife, composer Augusta Read Thomas
