Description
Why Mahler? Why does his music affect us in the way it does? Norman Lebrecht, one of the world's most widely read cultural commentators, has been wrestling obsessively with Mahler for half his life. Pacing out his every footstep from birthplace to grave, scrutinizing his manuscripts, talking to those who knew him, Lebrecht constructs a complelling 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 -- Inside jacket cover.
