KIRKUS REVIEW

18th and 19th centuries in musical history in Vienna, against the background of internal and external events -- from Gluck, Hayden, Mozart to Strauss, Brahms, Wagner, Bruckner, Mahler. The early struggles of musicians, their personal lives and musical careers. Covers a lot of ground and is a portrait of a cultural center at its heyday. Seems to be a thorough job.
