How One Man and Ten Symphonies Changed Our World
Following Mahler’s every footstep from birthplace to grave, scrutinizing his manuscripts, talking to those who knew him, Lebrecht constructs a compelling new portrait of Mahler as a man who lived determinedly outside his own times. Mahler was, along with Picasso, Einstein, Freud, Kafka, and Joyce, a maker of our modern world.
Why Mahler? is a book that shows how music can change our lives.
