"The scope of the book, despite its concentration, is immensely wide; and so is the readership it addresses. Mahler scholars will appreciate its absorbing research and the approach to Mahler's forms (Donald Mitchell is especially strong on the composer's brilliant use of strophic form in his later period): performers - signers and conductors particularly - will respond to the interpretative issues the book brings to the fore; while general readers and Mahler enthusiasts will find a text that will deepen and sometimes fundamentally modify their perception of a body of music which has a central place in the composer's output and in the musical experience and awareness of the twentieth century and beyond."--Résumé de l'éditeur

To mark this event, the present Festschrift has been compiled under the editorship of Philip Reed." "Distinguished composers, scholars, colleagues and friends from around the world have written on aspects of the two composers closest to Mitchell's heart - Mahler and Britten - to produce a volume which not only reflects some of the latest thinking on this pair of remarkable figures in the music of our century, but which also pays full tribute to the impact of Mitchell's own work on these composers over the last fifty years. The volume includes the fullest bibliography of Mitchell's writings yet compiled."--BOOK JACKET

Discovering Mahler : writings on Mahler, 1955-2005 by Donald Mitchell ( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Discovering Mahler is the fourth and final volume of Donald Mitchell's unique studies of Mahler and his music. This new publication fills the remaining gaps in the scrutiny of Mahler's works in the series, principally the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Symphonies, with the Ninth and Tenth. It begins with a substantial survey of Mahler's music, commissioned for the sixth edition of Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians (1980), but here printed in full for the first time. A striking feature throughout this collection is the examination of the revelatory role of the performer; this is epitomized in transcripts of significant conversations about the Fifth and Seventh Symphonies with, respectively, Riccardo Chailly and Bernard Haitink. The concluding section consists of major lectures and celebratory essays, some here published for the first time in English. These form a fascinating and frequently moving personal testament to a lifetime, and specifically fifty working years, of discovering Mahler."--Publisher's website
