Our "Postcards from Composers" series continues with some likes and dislikes of Gustav Mahler.

We hear part of the Fourth Symphony he talks about in his letter, from a concert performance in San Francisco.

In Davies Symphony Hall, Michael Tilson Thomas leads the San Francisco Symphony in the closing movement of Mahler's Mahler's Symphony No. 4.
