* FriendlyRivalry: With [[Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra Richard Strauss]]. Mahler said [[NotSoDifferent they were digging towards the same summit from different sides of a mountain]].



* KavorkaMan: Described as this by his widow Alma. Also had the (unjust) reputation of being TheCasanova.

Added DiffLines:

* TheMentor: To Music/ArnoldSchoenberg and like-minded. He actually was friends with Schoenberg. But since Mahler had shades of DrillSergeantNasty, [[RageAgainstTheMentor they had hot-headed arguments]]. According to Alma, Mahler was GenreSavvy enough to know that Schoenberg [[TakeUpMySword will eventually built on Mahler's innovations and herald a new age of classical music]]. During Schoenberg's "Skandalkonzerte" he always defended his friend. Keep in mind, [[BadassTeacher these arguments sometimes ended in fistfights of pro and contra-Schoenberg]].

* EverythingIsAnInstrument: The infamous ''Mahlerhammer'' in the 6th symphony is a large wooden hammer, used as a percussive instrument. Also needs [[Creator/ChristopherWalken more cowbell]] in the finale.

Added DiffLines:

* ScareChord: After the third movement of his 1st Symphony quietly fades out, the fourth movement starts with a rapid ''Crash-Screech-'''''BOOM!''' to jolt the audience out of their seats and make them pay attention again, while the final movement of the 2nd Symphony starts with a quick figure in the low strings and then a shrill, dissonant chord Mahler called the ''Ruf des Schmerzes'' ("Scream of Anguish"). [[EarnYourHappyEnding Both symphonies get better, though.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DramaticTimpani: Used very quietly in the third movement of his 1st Symphony (emphasizing the motif of the descending fourth interval that ties the four movements together) and to accompany the fanfares in the fourth movement, and [[SubvertedTrope played very slowly]] at the end of the 3rd Symphony.

* ThePowerOfLove: Strong believer of this, and considered God and Love to be one and the same. With the exception of the 6th, ''Das Lied von der Erde'', and the 9th symphony, his symphonies end in either a massive blaze of glory (Nos.1, 2, 5, 7, 8) or complete serenity (Nos.3, 4) in the finale, representing the victory of love over suffering.

With the exception of the 6th, No.4 (which ends serenely), No.6 (which ends brutally), ''Das Lied von der Erde'', Erde'' (which ends bleakly), and the 9th symphony, No.9 (which simply fades away), his symphonies end in either a massive blaze of glory (Nos.1, 2, 5, 7, 8) or complete serenity (Nos.3, 4) in the finale, representing the victory of love over suffering.
