A Conductor’s Guide to Symphonies I, II, and III

Michael J Esselstrom.

This volume is intended to clarify the formidable task of learning and conducting a Mahler symphony for the first time. Each of the three chapters addressing the Symphony No. 1 in D major, the Symphony No. 2 in C minor the -Resurrection- , and Symphony No. 3 in D minor is arranged in the same fashion: historical background and programmatic information is provided, followed by an instrumentation list and a phrasal analysis, culminating in a detailed discussion of each movement. A conducting commentary explains musical and technical considerations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
