Gustav Mahler and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra tour America.


Gustav Mahler and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra tour America.

Wagner, Mary H.

Scarecrow Pr.


239 pages




Mahler (1860-1911) is best known as a composer, but Wagner (music, U. of Michigan-Flint) describes how he helped reshape and transform the New York Philharmonic into a leading orchestra. The orchestra was reorganized in 1909, and wanted a new leader; Mahler accepted the challenge and spent his final two years meeting it. She documents his American tours with the orchestra, preparations for them, the outcome of each concert, and the perception of audiences beyond New York City.
