Gustav Mahler by Donald Mitchell

Book Description

A monument in Mahler studies, this volume concentrates on the composer's vocal music and, in particular, on some of his most famous, most original and best loved compositions: the late Rueckert orchestral songs and Kindertotenlieder; Das Lied von der Erde, one of the composer's supreme masterpieces, and the vast Eighth Symphony. Much new ground is broken but the author bases his conclusions on a meticulous examination of the principal manuscript sources, especially those for Das Lied. He offers an unprecedented exploration of the original Chinese texts for that work and indeed of the whole Oriental dimension of Mahler's last and greatest song-cycle. Time and time again, the composer's sketches back up the author's reading of these massive scores and there will be few among this book's readers who will not find a familiar passage or movement sharply illuminated by fresh insights and information. The scope of the book, despite its concentration, is immensely wide; and so is the readership it addresses: Mahler scholars, performers, and general readers. DONALD MITCHELL was Founder Professor of Music at the University of Sussex. He is currently Visiting Professor at Sussex and York, and formerly at King's College, London.

People's Property? by Donald Mitchell People's Property?, Hardback (October 2007)

An examination of how negotiations over the ownership, control, and peopling of public space are central to the development of publicity, citizenship, and democracy in urban areas. This book asks the questions such as: Why does it matter who owns public property? Who controls it? And, who is in it?

Mahler Companion by Donald Mitchell Mahler Companion, Paperback (May 2002)

In this title, Mahler specialists write about his music from a variety of standpoints. Chapters document the global spread of the composer's own symphonies and song cycles. Unexplored areas of research receive attention, both places (such as London and Prague) and people (Mahler's only surviving and highly talented daughter--a sculptor--Anna).

Cultural Geography by Donald Mitchell Cultural Geography, Paperback (April 2000)

* Analyses recent transformations in cultural geographic theory, whilst salvaging the most valuable aspects of older traditions. * Encourages debate over the ideology of culture, the production of value and the role of cultural struggle in reproducing social life.
