Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is rare to find such an extensive treatment of one of Mahler's more popular works, and it certainly highlights the importance of the Fifth Symphony in the composer's oeuvre. This is volume produced on a lavish scale that few other publishers would risk. Its existence is testimony to the continuing interest in Mahler's music, and it's contents suggest directions yet to be explored."— Journal of the American Musicological Society.
