If even Mahler could be this happy, there’s hope for us all. Inspired by the fifth movement of the composer’s Third Symphony (“Cheerful in tempo and cheeky in expression”), this is an ideal mood for that first get-together once you and your friends are all fully vaccinated, captured in a collage of cheerful reds and cheeky swirling patterns.
With a nod to the world beyond, the second movement of Mahler’s “Resurrection” Symphony (“Very leisurely. Never rush.”) comes to life here in a mixed media collage of heavenly blues and green. Because we can all use a reminder to slow down and enjoy a more gentle pace. Perfect for lazy Sundays you spend at home while your wife has an affair with Walter Gropius.
Stop. (The Lady with the) Hammer Time. Wearing this Galina Ustvolskaya T-shirt around others will lead to one of two outcomes: They’ll ask, “What’s an Ustvolskaya Ultra and why is Anjelica Huston endorsing it?”, which gives you the perfect opportunity to tell them about the greatest Russian composer they’ve never heard of. OR they’ll look at it, then look at you, and nod knowingly as a fellow fan. Either way, it’s about as great a success as you can hope to achieve with a T-shirt.
Okay, “feared” may be a little subjective… But we are at the very least the classical music magazine with a big mouth that loves strong personalities and radical points of view. If you’re also into the weird, wonderful, or just plain wrong, now’s your chance to wear your #VANlife on your sleeve with our premium logo T-shirt.
