Bruckner Studies presents the latest musicological and theoretical research on the life and music of Anton Bruckner. It is the most important English-language book on the composer since Robert Simpson's The Essence of Bruckner. The essays provide new biographical insights into his enigmatic personality, working procedures, and circle of students and friends; consider the fascinating history of the dissemination of his music during his lifetime and in this century, including its reception in Nazi Germany; and provide new analytical perspectives on his musical style and its origins. The volume challenges the reader to reassess the man and his music in a new light, unencumbered by decades of special interest and propaganda which have coloured perceptions of Bruckner for more than a century.

Industry Reviews

'... its influences could well be salutary.' BBC Music Magazine 'This is, undoubtedly, the most important book on Bruckner to emerge in the English language since the publication, more than a decade ago, of Robert Simpson's The Essence of Bruckner and it adds immeasurably to our knowledge of the subject.'
