For my German class I need to study the life and work of an artist. I picked Gustav Mahler, and I've created a Spotify playlist with the Mahler's best introductory songs and symphony. The playlist name should be something like "An introduction: Gustav Mahler" or "Gustav Mahler: an introduction", both would work.

Currently the name of the playlist is: "Vorstellen: Gustav Mahler".

I'm almost certain this is not the correct form.

  • Not sure, whether it is relevant for your presentation: Gustav Mahler was from Austria. – guidot Mar 20 '19 at 8:31

    Not relevant. The city Mahler was born would be in Czech Republic today :) – Filipe dos Santos Mar 20 '19 at 11:31

Putting the name of the person introduced in front is typical:

Gustav Mahler – Eine Einführung (Gustav Mahler – An Introduction)

Gustav Mahler – Ein Überblick (Gustav Mahler – An Overview)

If you wanted to hint the audience, you may give a conclusion about his work:

Gustav Mahler – Musik und Darstellung (Gustav Mahler – Music and Presentation)
