    schema:description ""Mary H. Wagner has amassed data from more than one thousand articles to present a thorough description of the planning and reception of the Philharmonic on its first tour outside New York. She explores how Mahler designed programs to appeal to American audiences, employed one hundred musicians on the tours and presented compositions by Wagner, Strauss, Berlioz, and Bach to audiences, many of whom had never heard works played by a full romantic orchestra. The book also provides a history of touring and orchestral development at the turn of the twentieth century."--Jacket."@en ;
