"A brisk, engaging journey through the life of a fascinating and enormously influential artist." --Kansas City Star "Very enjoyable to read, gossipy as well as learned, and it makes the man come to life." --The Economist "Lebrecht's book brings Mahler scholarship into to the present by including interviews with conductors, visits to sites with Mahler connections and an excellent annotated discography." --The Star-Ledger "Readers of Why Mahler? will be grateful to Lebrecht for his enthusiasm and for his highly personal cultural history." --The Wall Street Journal "As a short introduction to the meaning of Mahler, this sympathetic biography will do very well." --The Times (London) "We could not put the book down. Mahler is boss." --Richmond Times-Dispatch
