ABOUT THIS BOOK
Painter examines the politicization of musical listening in Germany and Austria, showing how nationalism, anti-Semitism, liberalism, and socialism profoundly affected the experience of music. She draws on extensive writings on the symphony, particularly those of Mahler and Bruckner, to offer evidence that music can and did serve ideological ends.
