In the years approaching the centenary of Mahler's death, this book offers the only comprehensive, single-volume study in English of his music and musical activities. Contributions from a collection of distinguished Mahler scholars discuss works in all genres and from all periods, and investigate technical and interpretative aspects of his lifelong career as conductor. In addition, chapters in the book's opening and closing sections address respectively the socio-cultural contexts within which he lived and worked, and his vital legacy for music and culture in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
