[object Object] (Thomas Peattie, Music and Letters)
Johnson's rich and provocative study ... serves not only as a welcome antidote but also as an open invitation to a renewed engagement with this all-too-familiar music in terms of what Johnson hears as its multi-vocal character. ...Mahler's Voices stands as an impressively multi-vocal book in which a wide array of conflicting views are allowed to coexist. Held together by Julian Johnson's strong authorial voice, it serves as a call to performers, critics, and listeners who have been reluctant to address the broader implications of Mahler's many voices. (Thomas Peattie, Music & Letters)
