Audio interview with de la Grange

Classical Source, the online magazine of classical reviews and features, has an extensive audio interview with the Mahler scholar Henry-Louis de la Grange on their website here. The final volume of his epic Mahler biography (the new volume for is over 1500 pages) has recently been published, and is awaiting my attention on my desk.

Well worth a listen. Listen online, or download to your iPod by right clicking and selecting “save target as…”

    Thanks for the link Ken. I look forward to listening to it. I have the fourth volume and it is indeed excellent, although I am only a third of the way through it! I wonder whether you know if and when the first volume will become available?

    Hey Jim-

    Great to hear from you- hope all is well over at the madhouse. Sue sends her best. You’re doing well to be even a third of the way through Volume 4!

    I’ll post here if I have any word from HLdlG about the next release dates…

    Cheers man- see you soon

    Hi Ken. Thanks for that. The ‘madhouse’ is indeed still the madhouse! However, this time of year is my favourite, Proms, festivals and the like! Daniel Harding being a highlight, although the heat of the tent maybe a downside!

    I believe the updated edition of Volume 1 is in the pipeline, so should be available within the foreseeable!

    Have a great time in the US.
