Some friendships take strange paths. The two compositions of the summer tour represent the beginning of a dazzling friendship between the young, impetuous Gustav Mahler and the Nordic reserved, highly respected Johannes Brahms. Both works are written almost simultaneously and shortly before their composers find each other.
