About the Author

Antony Beaumont was born in London and studied at King's College, Cambridge. He now lives in Germany where he is active as a conductor, lecturer, and freelance musicologist. In 1992, Beaumont was commissioned by the Hamburg State Opera to complete the orchestration of Zemlinsky's last opera, Der Konig Kandaules. Premiered in 1996, the work has since been staged by several other opera companies, recorded and televised. Beaumont has also edited and (where necessary) reconstructed several other major works from the composer's posthumous papers at the Library of Congress. Antony Beaumont is author of Busoni the Composer. He co-edited (with Susanne Rode-Breymann) Alma Mahler-Werfel's Diaries 1898-1902, his English translation of which was published to great acclaim by Faber in 1998.

Reviews

'Are Collected Letters a superior form of biography? When as numerous and meticulously edited as these of Gustav Mahler, when they provide a time capsule ride back to the last days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the answer must be yes... This remarkable book is unputdownable, even for a non-Mahlerite'. Literary Review 'A vivid and telling portrayal of Mahler's personality in his voice.' Times Literary Supplement 'The letters are linked by a commentary that makes the volume both an easy and gripping read... There is passion in this book to scald the hand.' Sunday Times
