Abstract: In recent years, artistic projects combining a wide array of musical styles, such as jazz interpretations of classical music or orchestral arrangements of rock songs, have enjoyed considerable popularity. As their authors were focused mainly on sales profi ts, the artistic value of their works was often highly disputable. Nevertheless, some outstanding achievements in that fi eld have also been made, among them reinterpretations of classical repertoire – Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Schumann, and, above all, Mahler – by American pianist Uri Caine. He recorded several CDs containing new versions of Mahler’s entire works or their excerpts. Sometimes Caine’s music moves far away from the originals, though such artistic experiments are always well-grounded and aesthetically convincing. Caine’s reinterpretations of Mahler have also some (auto)biographical overtones.
