For more than thirty years, the Society has presented many and various programs. Under Jack Diether’s presidency, from 1977 to 1987, there were annual chamber concerts of song, piano transcriptions and other arrangements, including some premieres (tapes of the concerts from 1977 to 1984 are part of the Jack Diether collection and may be heard at the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at the New York Public Library of the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center; www.nypl.org/research ). Lectures by renowned Mahler authorities Henry-Louis de La Grange and Donald Mitchell enlightened members.

 

Since 1987, the Society has presented many more lectures, concerts, video presentations, and has visited the archives of the New York Philharmonic, Carnegie Hall and the Morgan Library for private viewings of manuscripts, annotated scores, and letters. Lectures have been presented on musical history, biography and interpretation, and a series on each of Mahler’s works. Speakers have included Society President Lewis M. Smoley, David Aldeborgh, Charles Zachary Bornstein, Leon Botstein, Jerry Bruck, Uri Caine, William Carragan, Riccardo Chailly, Sedgwick Clarke, Glen Cortese,  Stephen Hefling, David Hurwitz, Michael Jameson, Joel Lazar, Norman Lebrecht, Yoon Jae Lee, Andrew Litton, Marilyn McCoy, Thomas Oliemans, Dennis Rooney, Thomas Sanderling, Sybille Werner, Mark Wigglesworth, Benjamin Zander; as well as the late Jonathan Carr, Harold Farberman, Stuart Feder, Susan Filler,past GMSNY president Gerald S. Fox, Henry-Louis de La Grange, Gilbert Kaplan, and Ted Reilly.
