Jonathan Carr’s Mahler: A Life

At our May 2016 meeting we will discuss Bill Hagens’ selection:

Jonathan Carr, Mahler: A Life, Overlake Press, 1998. (Also published as Mahler: A biography and The Real Mahler)

Bill provides the following information about his selection
As we proceed, I’ll comment on Mahler’s life and music with specific links to YouTube availability.

My job will be not only to inform but also to entertain. I hope I succeed.

    I’ve learned it’s difficult getting Carr’s book on Mahler. And apparently, it’s not on kindle.

    Norman LeBrecht’s Why Mahler?: How One Man and Ten Symphonies Changed Our World is a good alternative and it is on kindle.
