Quote from: Anne on June 03, 2007, 11:36:32 AMThis book on The Mahler Symphonies is one of the series: Unlocking the Masters. There are about 12-14 books in this series and a new one comes out every 3-6 months.
Quote from: hornteacher on June 03, 2007, 06:06:40 PMIt's a great series too. Big print, organized layout, sample CDs, and interesting reading.

Quote from: hornteacher on June 03, 2007, 07:04:00 PMThat's why I like the series. It gets in depth enough to help you listen to the music better but doesn't read like a doctoral thesis.The Dvorak book and the two on Mozart (one for vocal music, one for instrumental) are especially good.
