    Preparing for the Mahler Centenary

    THE MAHLER ALBUM has been updated by author Gilbert Kaplan, one of the foremost authorities on Mahler having written and lectured extensively on Mahler, and as a conductor, he has led more than 50 orchestras around the world in acclaimed performances of the Second Symphony. The initial book was published in 1995, but in paving the way for the Mahler Centenary this very beautiful volume has been updated not only with commentary by Kaplan, but also b adding even more photographs of Gustav Mahler, from childhood to death mask. In addition to all of the well-reproduced photographs of the composer, his family, his colleagues, and the places where his works were premiered, there are also numerous cartoons that make us remember how many critics responded to the genius. His conducting techniques, while producing some of the finest performances of opera in history, were infamous in his demands form many extra rehearsals of nearly everything he conducted. Now in this volume we have portraits of the artist as painted by some artists of his day as well as some 'retrospective portraits' that offer the visage of the genius in a kinder light. Through this collection of images are essays from Kaplan about what makes Mahler great as well as quotations from the period of Mahler's life and comments form those who recognized his genius far before the general public. This is a fitting tribute to Gustav Mahler and as his centenary approaches it will become a collector's item. Grady Harp
