Gilbert E. Kaplan, a financial publisher who had an accidental second career as an international symphony conductor - despite the fact that he could scarcely read music and possessed a concert repertoire of exactly one piece - died on New Year’s Day in Manhattan. He was 74. The cause was cancer, his daughter Emily Kaplan said. Originally trained as an economist, Mr. Kaplan was the founder and longtime chief executive of Institutional Investor, a monthly magazine for pension fund and asset managers. After starting the publication in 1967, at 26, he built it into a multimedia concern comprising.

They also record his years at the Metropolitan Opera in New York and his final post as music director of the New York Philharmonic. Informative captions accompany the illustrations, and revealing commentary provides the historical background.Mahler broke new ground in both composition and conducting, and today his music is more popular than ever.

Because of my deep love for Mahler's music, about six years ago I somehow scraped together more than a hundred dollars to buy a copy of The Mahler Album. For lovers of everything Mahler, the book is an absolute "must." My only regret was having to pay so much money, and I hoped that someday, Gilbert Kaplan might release a re-issue at a more affordable price.

That is what he has done...and then some!

Kaplan has retained all the beauty of the photographs and descriptions from his original work, AND he has made a few corrections or, better said, clarifications about some of the photos.

Many of the photographs have been "tuned-up" to improve their clarity. This improvement is especially noticeable in the photos of Mahler's composing cottage at Toblach. Also, there has been some repositioning of the photographs on the page, and enlargement of some pictures which adds to the impact on the reader. Color versions of several have replaced the previous B&W photos.

There are also additional chapters on "Posthumous Art," and "Postage Stamps" featuring Mahler.

Why a book containing all the known photographs of composer Gustav Mahler?

Gilbert Kaplan's "The Mahler Album" is a treasure of incalculable value for those who love the music of Gustav Mahler. It is often described as a collection of all known photographs of composer/conductor Mahler, yet it is much more than this. It is 336 pages, including photographs, a 22 page chronology of Mahler's life, and several additional pages comprising a chronology of all his works.

The Mahler images are grouped as those relating to Mahler, his family, his homes and halls, paintings, drawings and sculpture relating to Mahler, and finally dozens of period cartoons which help show the public's and the critics' attitudes toward Mahler.

Like Mahler's music, which most Mahlerians regard as "larger than life," the pages are 10 and one-half by 9 inches, which allows for an excellent presentation of the images.

And, I've saved the best for last: this work is most aptly introduced by an essay (pages 17-30) written in 1921 by Mahler's friend, the great scenery designer, Alfred Roller. Introducing the Album with Roller's insightful thoughts about Mahler is yet additional evidence of Gilbert Kaplan's brilliance, good taste, and love for Mahler. Mr. Kaplan, we are indebted to you! Those who love Mahler: this book is for you.

I bought a copy of the first edition of The Mahler Album as a gift so when I saw there was a new expanded edition of the book; I got a copy for myself.

The genesis of this book came from Alma Mahler, who asked Alfred Roller to put a photo album together. Mr. Roller also contributed a memoir of Mahler, which is included in this book and is a fascinating look at the private Gustav Mahler. The new album includes several new photographs from Mahler’s childhood, Mahler conducting, places where he lived or worked, a new section of cartoons, posthumous art and postage stamps and an additional photograph of Mahler’s death mask. Several photographs were assigned to a different time, most notably a photograph of Mahler standing of the deck of a ship during his Atlantic crossing, was reassigned to 1910 from 1911.

The previous edition of the album used a rectangular format (1.2 x 9.8 x 13 inches) while the new edition is more square (1.4 x 9.2 x 11 inches). The prior volume had a photograph of what was purported to be a pair of Mahler’s glasses (once in the possession of Bruno Walter), but as the new edition points out the glasses are now suspect as the prescription does not match another pair that he definitely owned. Hence, the new edition has a photograph of Mahler replacing the glasses. The book will be of interest for those of us who are fascinated by Mahler’s life and music and want a photographic history of his life. In that regard, The Mahler Album is an invaluable resource not only for the photographs of Mahler but as others saw him through caricatures, cartoons and works of art.

A lovely and large collection of photographs, sketches, other images of Gustav Mahler. A must for any Mahler fan - aficcionado!

This book gathers a vast collection of images of Mahler's public and private lives, one of the biggest names in Classical music. Not only music lovers, but anyone who's interested in arts shall appreciate it. There are pictures of a number of important contemporaries of his. People who lived the glorious days of German post-romantic culture. Ultimately, it is also a valuable historical registry.

I hesitated to order this book at first, realizing it is primarily a photo book rather than a biography. There were many photos here that were previously published in books like the Henri-Louis dela Grange 4-volume Mahler biography series. However, there are are enough unique photos to make the purchase worth it. One example is a complete list of Mahler's all-female line of progeny. lA definite must for any Mahler afficionado.

Perfect companion to the new Mahler biography. Second edition MUCH cheaper than out-of-print first edition. Beautiful book with many pictures.
