The Intimate Mahler,
This review is from: Gustav Mahler: Letters to his Wife (Paperback)
For those interested in Mahler, the man, to shed some light on the genesis of his challenging music, this is an ideal collection. Carefully edited and organised in a scholarly fashion, it contains a wide range of his letters and other material, e.g. a few entries from her diary. Essentially quite a private man despite his public life, his conducting and other duties, it builds an interesting picture covering a long period of his life.
