Walking with Freud: One hundred years on, composer David Matthews and psychoanalyst Anthony Cantle retrace the famous walk that Mahler and Freud took around the Dutch town of Leiden. On 26th August 1910, Gustav Mahler took a four-hour walk with Sigmund Freud. Mahler's marriage to Alma was in tatters and, on the edge of a breakdown, he telegraphed Freud asking for an urgent consultation. Freud was on holiday with his family in Leiden, Holland and asked Mahler to make the journey from Vienna to Leiden, which he duly did. David and Anthony visit Leiden, to walk and talk together about this tantalising episode which is close to both of their hearts. They retell the story of the meeting giving it a context and, as a composer and psychoanalyst, they also bring their own professional and personal insights to the story.
