This volume contains English translations of three important literary works by Austrian conductor Felix Weingartner (1863–1942). The title essay is a detailed account of specific performing difficulties and questions of interpretation in each of the nine symphonies, a comprehensive treatment that will be indispensable to music students. Additional features include “On Conducting” and "The Symphony Since Beethoven,” both of which attest to the author's belief that art is at its best when an "exceedingly delicate balance is attained between the feeling and the intellect.” Weingartner's wealth of observations on music and musicians will fascinate anyone interested in symphonic traditions.
