Spanning two decades of the cultural life of Melbourne, from 1891 until the start of World War I, this collection of the letters of the composer, conductor and critic G.W.L. Marshall-Hall samples the scandal, disappointments, achievements and camaraderie of those years. Sometimes caustic and often opinionated, the letters expose their author’s infectious enthusiasm for Art as well as his tendency to rile his enemies. Gathered here from public and private archives in Australia and Britain are 249 of the extant letters, each of which offers a vivid portrait of a man many described as a musical genius. About the editor Suzanne Robinson teaches music history at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music. She has edited books on Marshall-Hall, Percy Grainger and Michael Tippett and has a special interest in the life and works of Peggy Glanville-Hicks. xiv, 226 p. | ISBN: 9780734037800 (paperback)
