About the Author

Charles Youmans is Assistant Professor of Musicology at Penn State University and author of Richard Strauss's Orchestral Music and the German Intellectual Tradition: The Philosophical Roots of Musical Modernism (IUP, 2005).


"Along the way, Mahler and Strauss in Dialogue tells a compelling story of the unexpected ways that their worlds overlapped. In so doing, it provides a model for comparative analysis that enriches our understanding of a relationship that indelibly shaped the musical world of their time and continues to fascinate us today."

* German Studies Review *

Mahler and Strauss takes us on a journey that traverses the broader historical and cultural climate of German-speaking Europe at the turn of the twentieth century (with a brief excursion to America along the way). And throughout this journey we are offered a succession of fresh and imaginative readings of the source material that provide us with new ways of understanding the fundamental importance of a profoundly meaningful friendship between two remarkable musicians.

* Nineteenth-Century Music Review *
A fascinating volume . . . It's also an impressive achievement in terms of its scholarship and casts a great deal of light on these two composers, both individually and together. * Grammophone *

[T]his book is a serious and much-needed intellectual examination of these two composers and the impact of literary, philosophical, and spiritual interests on their music.

* Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism *
Thanks to Youmans's lucid style and easy mastery of often dense material, it works well, and the high aesthetic stakes involved are established early. * The Musical Times *
