Summary
"The English conductor, composer and critic G.W.L. Marshall-Hall dominated music in Melbourne from his arrival in 1891 to his untimely death in 1915. He was a firebrand and an iconoclast hated by the clergy, feared by the press and adored by all his friends. Here, sixteen essayists examine Marshall-Hall's music, his teaching and philosophy, his friendships with artists and musicians (inc. Arthur Streeton and Percy Grainger), and the ruinous scandals sparked by his views on religion, sex and the role of the press."--Back cover
