Overview

The Mahler Album is the definitive collection of all known photographs of the legendary composer and conductor Gustav Mahler (1860-1911). Mahler broke new ground in both composition and conducting, and today his music is more popular than ever. Selected by Gilbert Kaplan, a renowned expert, the beautifully reproduced images are enhanced by photographs of Mahler's family, his homes, the opera houses in which he worked—including the Metropolitan Opera in New York—and by a rich selection of drawings, paintings, and sculpture. 

This expanded edition, published to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Mahler's birth (and the 100th anniversary of his death), presents newly discovered photographs and works of art, and a selection of colorful postage stamps featuring Mahler. Informative captions and revealing commentary provide historical background.
